  1. This Table shows the description of the samples from which RNA has been extracted. Columns A and B show samples sequenced by 454. They consist of 14 whole organisms developmental time-points (clumn A) and 13 dissected tissues (column B). Column C shows 10 samples sequenced by Illumina and column D shows the abbreviation of the Illumina libraries names that are used in the figures of the paper.
  2. *Those six samples in column A, corresponding to whole organisms developmental time-points, have also been sequenced by Illumina (Column C).
  3. §Those four samples in column C, correspond to dissected tissues that have been sequenced by Illumina only and that were not included in the pooled sample for 454 sequencing.
