  1. We report the total number of genes expressed, and those that were sex-biased at two different fold-change cutoffs (1.2 fold and median-fold difference within each tissue) and FDR < 0.1. We also report genes that were sex-biased in multiple tissues with the same direction of change between the sexes.
