Meta-analysis of genome-wide sex-biased expression in adult A. gambiae. A) Meta analysis of male to female expression ratios and correlation with original expression data from published studies used for metadata computation. R1, R2 and R3 correspond to the biological replicates presented in each study. Each dot represents a gene, with genes presenting 2-fold increased expression in male A. gambiae when compared to females for both metadata and original reaction shown in blue, while genes presenting a 2-fold decrease for the same conditions are shown in pink. B) Histogram presenting the frequency of genes that were identified by the meta analysis for varying male to female expression ratios. C) Proportion of male- (blue) and female-biased genes (pink) and their expression difference in the meta analysis dataset.
