Summary of 5490 DEGs and their annotations. The relative expression levels of DEGs and their annotations in the nr, COG, GO, and KEGG public databases were summarized. Among the 5490 differentially expressed genes, only 3805 were annotated in one of the above public databases.

GO terms enriched in the differentially expressed genes. The results were summarized in three main categories: biological process, cellular component and molecular function. GO analysis showed that three molecular functions were found to be enriched at p < 0.05 level, and eight biological processes were significantly enriched at p < 0.05 level in the alimentary canals of grain aphid upon feeding on wheat plants.
