Table 1 Numbers of sex-biased ESTs and genes identified

From: The sex-biased brain: sexual dimorphism in gene expression in two species of songbirds

  ESTs non-redundant genes % of all sex-biased ESTs % of all sex-biased genes mean FC non-redundant genes
Zebra Finch      
male-biased genes 460 383 90 95 1.08
female-biased genes 49 19 9.6 4.7 0.77
Common Whitethroat      
male-biased genes 318 271 92 94 1.32
female-biased genes 27 16 7.8 5.6 0.66
  1. A total of 509 ESTs corresponding to 417 genes were identified in the zebra finch, and 345 ESTs corresponding to 299 genes in the common whitethroat.
