  1. *Male- and female-specific sets include genes that are expressed only in that sex, whereas sex-biased are expressed, on average, three-fold higher in one sex than the other. X2 and p-values derived from Kruskal Wallis; three asterisks denote p-value < 0.0001. Ms, male-specific; Mb, male-biased; Fs, female-specific; Fb, female-biased; U, unbiased. §F, female; M, male; U, unbiased; NSS, non-sex-specific; SS, sex-specific. Divergence refers to lineage specific divergence along the D. simulans branch.
