  1. Numbers of genes regulated by rich diet feeding. Differential expression in healthy bees fed pollen (P), Bee-Pro (B) or MegaBee (M) is assessed against carbohydrates only diet (C). Respectively, the same diet treatments in Nosema-infected bees are referred to as PN, BN and MN, which differential expression is considered against carbohydrates/Nosema (CN). The up and down arrows denote genes that are up- or downregulated through RNA-seq analysis; the numbers of known Drosophila orthologs are also described
