  1. `Size’: Number of significant genes in each module (n > 50). `Tissue’: tissues in which the transcripts in each module are significantly over-expressed compared to the whole body data from [62]. `Up’ (`Down’) is the subset of up-regulated (down-regulated) transcripts in the module. In parentheses is indicated whether the subset tend to be up-regulated or down-regulated after mating, or a mix of the two (mixed); P value from a MR-GSE test; see also Additional file 1: Figures S1A-S7A, data from [44]. `Fitness assoc’. indicates whether the genes in the module are over-represented among the genes found to be associated with female fitness MR-GSE test, data from [60].
