  1. a upregulated (UP)/ downregulated (DOWN)
  2. b the DEGs (781 upregulated) were ranked according to their RPKM in descending order, the number describes the position of the DEG in the ranked table; transcripts in bold were among the top 25 % most abundant
  3. c not applicable (expression low to undetectable in both samples, transcript filtered out)
  4. d not significant
