  1. The data for D. melanogaster has been downloaded from Flybase ( while the data from B. mori has been downloaded from SilkDB ( In D. melanogaster, all transcripts correspond to the latest version of transcript annotation coming from gene prediction and manual curation. B. mori dataset has been generated by assembling a collection of ~64,000 ESTs, giving two reference points for different transcriptomic strategies.
