Global change in transcriptomes of degenerative embryos. Differences between the mean log2 transformed expressions of degenerative embryos and blastocysts plotted along each chromosome. 18 transcripts on the "Y" chromosome could not be plotted because there was no physical location information available for the "Y" chromosome from the current genome assembly. Each vertical bar on the chromosomes represents one transcript and was colored according to the expression difference. Bars above the axis were transcripts on the forward strand while bars below the axis were transcripts on the reverse strand. Blue color represents lower expression in degenerative embryos compared with blastocysts while red color represents higher expression in degenerative embryos, as indicated by the scale bar on the right.
