Phytophthora capsici infection of tomato results in two distinct transcriptional responses. (A) Overview of the number of significantly upregulated (dark grey) or downregulated (light grey) between adjacent timepoints. Differences in the number of differentially expressed genes can be seen between specific early (0 versus 8 hpi) and late (24 versus 48 hpi) time-point comparisons. The non-infected (Ni) tissue was a water-inoculated control sample. Comparisons between gene lists generated in pairwise comparisons revealed limited overlap in both (B) upregulated and (C) downregulated gene sets. Diagrams were generated using Venny .
