Table 2 Isotig and isogroup differential expression statistics for the four adult female phenotypes in P. canadensis

From: Transcriptome analyses of primitively eusocial wasps reveal novel insights into the evolution of sociality and the origin of alternative phenotypes

Phenotype Up-regulated (q > 0.6) isogroups (isotigs) Isogroups with recognized homologs Isogroups with annotated homologs Down-regulated (q > 0.6) isogroups (isotigs) Isogroups with recognized homologs Isogroups with annotated homologs
Queen 47 (67) 39 (82.9%) 20 (42.5%) 402 (522) 63 38
Worker 2,222 (2,924) 412 (18.5%) 238 (10.7%) 84 (109) 65 38
Foundress 11 (15) 8 (72.7%) 4 (36.4%) 2,389 (3,340) 776 507
Callow 162 (238) 142 (87.6%) 112 (69.1%) 1,454 (1,779) 322 194

  1. We show the number of isogroups and isotigs found as differentially expressed by NOISeq at a threshold q > 0.6; number and percentage of differentially expressed genes with significant homologs recognized in GenBank non-redundant databases; the number and percentage of annotated homologs; and values across all castes are given in the final row of the table. Distribution of up-regulated isogroups, recognized homologs and annotated homologs are highly significantly different between queens and workers (chi-square test; respective chi-square values: 1,566 (1d.f.), P < 2.2e-16; 4,795 (1d.f.), P = 9.1 × 10-13; 5,382 (1d.f.), P < 2.2e-16).
