  1. Concordant and discordant differential expression is displayed for nine miRNAs with their forty four differentially expressed between genders predicted gene targets by a false discovery rate of p < 0.05.
  2. 1miR: expressed 3p/5p mature sequence from miRNA precursors.
  3. 2Target recognition sites for miRNAs are represented by concordant (+) or discordant (−) differential expression, respectively, assuming that up-regulated miRNAs down-regulate their target sites [74].
  4. 3Probe numbers begin with the prefix “CUST_”.
  5. 4Gene symbol based on NCBI, ENSEMBL or tilapia LOC no. urgcp and zbed3 genes represent different probes at multiple locations in the genome.
  6. *The probability that the rate of concordant target sites should occur by chance is: (1/2)6 = 0.015.
