Putative gene family expansion assessed with the P. hawaiensis transcriptome. Gene families that were reported as expanded in the D. pulex genome [2] were examined for signatures of expansion in P. hawaiensis using the de novo transcriptome (see Methods). Gene families that appear particularly expanded in both crustaceans include chitinase (orange; KEGG EC number 3.2.1.14), adenosinetriphosphatase (red; KEGG EC number 3.6.1.3), 4-galactosyl-N-acetylglucosaminide 3-alpha-L-fucosyltransferase (green; KEGG EC number 2.4.1.152) and DNA-directed RNA polymerase (blue; KEGG EC number 2.7.7.6).
