Table 2 Extent of sex-bias in three L. salmonis populations using consensus sex-biased transcripts (Additional file 2)

From: Sex-biased gene expression and sequence conservation in Atlantic and Pacific salmon lice (Lepeophtheirus salmonis)

Sex-bias Population Proportion (%)
Low fold change (≥1.5 but < 4) High fold change (≥4 fold)
MALE BMA2a 51.5 48.5
BMA2b 55.3 44.7
Pacific 37.7 62.3
Mean FC 49.9 50.1
FEMALE BMA2a 85.5 14.5
BMA2b 98.5 1.5
Pacific 77.3 22.7
Mean FC 84.8 15.2
  1. Mean fold change (FC) was calculated for each transcript using the average fold change across the three populations
