Genes coding for shell proteins expression model at different development stage in P. f. martensii. a. the expression pattern of shell protein coding genes at different development stage in P. f. martensii. The y-axis is the normalized RPKM value. Egg, egg; Fe, fertilized egg; B, blastula; G, gastrula; ET, early trochophore; T, trochophore; D, D-stage larvae; DF, D-stage larvae before feeding; EU, early umbo larvae; EL, eyed larvae; S, spat; J, juveniles. b. the number of differentially expressed genes at the critical stages of shell formation
