From: Transcription through the eye of a needle: daily and annual cyclic gene expression variation in Douglas-fir needles

Fig. 3

Example expression profiles for transcripts exhibiting significant cyclic diurnal variation, ordered by phase. Gene expression (DESeq-normalized counts per transcript) was estimated by RNA-seq from needle samples representing three families of trees at four hour intervals for two days. For each gene, the Douglas-fir transcript name, putative gene name, and best BLAST match to Arabidopsis (prefix ‘at’) are provided. Lines connect the mean expression for each family; error bars represent the SD for all replicates. Absence of shading indicates daylight hours, while shading indicates night hours. Shown are transcripts reaching phase at 0:00 (a, b), 2:00 (c), 4:00 (d-f), 7:00 (g), 10:00 (h), 12:00 (i, j), 18:00 (k, l) and 20:00 (m-o)
