  1. *Male and female sets include genes that are expressed in that sex, but may also be expressed in the other sex. NS, not significantly differentially expressed between genotypes (AOV p-value > 0.001). SIG, significantly differentially expressed between genotypes (AOV p-value ≤ 0.001). §X2 and p-values derived from Kruskal Wallis; three asterisks denote p-value < 0.0001. Divergence refers to lineage specific divergence along the D. simulans branch.
