Validation of the DGE results by qPCR. This figure illustrates that the qPCR results are consistent with those of DGE. The qPCR results were normalized to the expression level of RPS20. See Additional file 7: Table S5 for DGE results, and Additional file 10: Table S7 for details of these genes. DGE results: FDR < 0.01 for all listed genes between breeds. qPCR results: error bars represent SE; the expression levels of all listed genes differ highly significantly (P < 0.01) between breeds.
