P. pacificus transcriptome is relatively more dynamic in dauer to dauer-exit transition (FDR corrected p-value < = 0.05)
Total genes on array
The Agilent arrays interrogate 20,446 genes for P. pacificus and 20,143 genes for C. elegans. We measure expression changes in the dauer to dauer-exit (12-hour time-point) transition using species-specific mix-stage sample as a common technical reference. Genes were called significantly differentially expressed (up- or down- regulated) based on a FDR corrected p-value cut-off of 0.05. P. pacificus transcriptome appears to be more dynamic during this transition.
