mRNA levels are regulated both in epimastigote (E) and metacyclic trypomastiogote (MT) life cycle stages. (
) Venn diagram indicating, at each stage, the number of detected genes (see Methods for detection criteria). The intersection is colored. (
) Scatter plot of the estimated expression levels as nRPK for both stages. Differentially expressed genes are shown in red (FC > 2, FDR < 0.05). (
) Heat map showing the variation of expression for the genes showing differences at the mRNA level at each stage.
