  1. The intensity for each development stage was normalised to the median intensity of all the developmental stages examined for each gene, thus providing a relative fold change. The number of probes or genes enriched 2- or 5-fold is presented. The 1782 value in parenthesis in the Total row, refers to the number of non-redundant genes enriched 2-fold or higher.
