Table 1 The median number of reads (per million in the library) that mapped to each pathogen in high and low aggression samples. Pathogen presence and abundance was assessed from RNAseq reads that failed to map to the honey bee genome. Numbers listed after tissue types show the sample sizes for high and low aggression individuals sequenced

From: The transcriptomic signature of low aggression in honey bees resembles a response to infection
