Functional classification in yeast and mold genes expressed during Camembert cheese ripening. Functional classification of clusters of euKaryotic Orthologous Groups (KOG database) in yeasts (black) and molds (grey) during Camembert cheese ripening. Scales were adjusted to fit categories with read numbers (A) generally over 1000 reads and (B) generally above 100 reads. Seven time points were taken (Day 5, 9, 15, 21, 35, 56 and 77), corresponding to key times in the ripening period. Read numbers were normalized to 100,000 reads/ripening day. The KOG categories presented belong to “Cellular processes and signaling” (D: cycle control, cell division, chromosome partitioning; M: Cell wall/membrane/envelope biogenesis; O: Post-translational modifications, protein turnover, chaperone functions; T: Signal transduction mechanisms; Y: Nuclear structures; Z: Cytoskeleton), “Information storage and processing” (B: Chromatin structures and dynamics; J: Translation); and “Metabolism” (C: Energy production and conversion; E: Amino acid transport and metabolism; G: Carbohydrate transport and metabolism; I: Lipid transport and metabolism).
