Transcriptional profiling of the G. pallida lifecycle. (A) Number of genes up- and downregulated between different stages in the G. pallida lifecycle. Labelled transitions are between egg and J2, J2 and early infection (7 and 14 dpi), early and late infection (21, 28 and 35 dpi) and J2 larvae and adult males. (B) Heatmap showing clustered expression profiles for all 2,052 differentially expressed genes. Genes are clustered to reflect similarity of expression profiles and then ordered by stage of highest expression, as labelled on the circumference of the figure.
