Table 1 General statistics of sequencing reads used in the three P. margaritifera RNA-seq datasets. Whole transcriptome sequencing libraries were generated on Illumina HiSeq4000 (paired-end (PE) sequencing 2 × 100 bp) and mapped to the reference transcriptome of P. margaritifera. The three datasets came from three different tissue compartments. Dataset ‘Juvenile’: Juvenile stage dataset (albino phenotype N = 5 and black wild-type phenotype N = 5). Dataset ‘Mantle’: Adult stage, mantle tissue (albino phenotype N = 4 and black wild-type phenotype N = 4). Dataset ‘Pearl Sac’: Adult stage, pearl sac (albino phenotype N = 4 and black wild-type phenotype N = 4)
