The genes whose expression profiles have been significantly modified by the status of byssogenesis. When Log (FC) > 0, the gene is up-regulated under the attachment status. * The differentially expressed ESTs with P < 0.01; A Also affected by Factor A (Temperature); B Also affected by Factor B (Agitation); C Also affected by Factor C (D.O.).

The genes whose expression profiles have been significantly modified due to the change of the temperature. Log (FC) > 0 means the gene is upregulated with the decrease of temperature. * The differentially expressed ESTs with P < 0.01; B Also affected by Factor B (Agitation); C Also affected by Factor C (D.O.); D Also affected by Factor D (Adhesion).

The genes whose expression profiles have been significantly modified due to the change of D.O. level. Log (FC) > 0 indicates the gene is upregulated when the dissolved oxygen in water is at lower level. * The differentially expressed ESTs with P < 0.01; A Also affected by Factor A (Temperature); B Also affected by Factor B (Agitation); D Also affected by Factor D (Adhesion).

Additional file 4:

The genes whose expression profiles have been significantly modified due to the change of current frequency. Log (FC) > 0 indicates the gene is upregulated when the mussel is under agitation. * The differentially expressed ESTs with P < 0.01; A Also affected by Factor A (Temperature); C Also affected by Factor C (D.O.); D Also affected by Factor D (Adhesion).
