  1. Listed are the numbers and percentages of assembled fire ant sequences and of D. melanogaster genes that match at least one of the second-level GO terms for molecular function, cellular component, or biological process. GO annotations for fire ant sequences were inferred electronically using two methods: blastx homology to GO-annotated proteins and Prosite protein domain scans. Statistically significant over- (↑) or underrepresentation (↓) of GO terms in fire ant relative to the Drosophila genome are indicated in bold (p < 10-8, Bonferroni-corrected hypergeometric test). *This number represents the sum of the numbers of occurences of GO terms below this level. The 'cell part' and 'virion part' GO categories were excluded from analyses because they were redundant with the 'cell' and 'virion' categories, respectively.
