  1. Number of differentially over- or under-expressed contigs from the transcriptome per tissue type, based on the mean p-value for the comparison of the tissue or tissue pair’s expression level of a contig compared to all other tissues. Contigs under-expressed in the one tissue could alternatively be said to be over-expressed in every other tissue (ex: under-expression in the fat body means over-expression in the digestive tissue). Several contigs showed differential expression in the midgut and cecae relative to the fat body and hindgut but not compared between the midgut and cecae, which was expected as the two tissues are connected and made of the same cells developmentally [32]
