From: Enhanced transcriptomic responses in the Pacific salmon louse Lepeophtheirus salmonis oncorhynchi to the non-native Atlantic Salmon Salmo salar suggests increased parasite fitness

Similar expression profiles over time of stress-related transcripts in Coho-fed, Sockeye-fed and starved L. salmonis. Using k-means clustering analysis, genes associated with stress were shown to be up-regulated over time in lice feeding on Coho and Sockeye Salmon, and by lice withheld from hosts (Starved). In contrast, these genes were down-regulated over time in lice feeding on Atlantic Salmon
