  1. We use two expression differences cut-offs, ‘All’, 1.2-fold difference in expression (FDR < 0.05) and ‘median’, median-fold difference in expression (FDR < 0.1) for three different tissues (brain, tail, and gonad). The LGs with significant over- or under-representation of sex-biased genes (p < 0.05) are listed and those with p < 0.05 after correcting for multiple testing are highlighted in bold.
