  1. Results of the enrichment analysis (Fisher's Exact Test with multiple testing correction; FDR < 0.05) as implemented in Blast2GO [43]. Tested were subsets of all significantly regulated transcripts as identified by sign test (up- and down-regulated separately for each gill and day or each combination of both). Reference-set in each analysis was the complete microarray sequence Blast2GO database generated from the contig list. GO = Gene Ontology term, name = GO name of the functional group, FDR = false discovery rate for correction of multiple testing, Over-/Underrepresentation = a GO term is considered over-/under-represented if it appears significantly more often/less often in the reference-set than it does in the test-set.
