Analysis of the gene expression levels of the D. melanogaster orthologs of the NWS library-specific unigenes. For each library-specific unigene we recorded the gene level high throughput expression data of the putative ortholog in D. melanogaster obtained from Flybase. The expression levels are sorted in bins that are represented by different colours. We used the same bins and colours as in Flybase. The D. melanogaster orthologs are displayed from the highest number of reads in the NWS libraries (top) to the lowest (bottom) in each library. The NWS larval-specific unigenes also showed a higher expression level in the putative ortholog in D. melanogaster. We only included in this analysis NWS unigenes represented by at least 10 reads in the male library, which corresponded to 13 and 17 reads in the larval and female library, respectively.
