Gene ontology was used to determine significant functional categories that were associated with higher levels of gene expression across the photoinduced changes in the POA of SD, LD7, LD21 and LD56 starlings. Only significant values are shown (p<0.05) for candidate terms, see Additional file 5: Table S5 for full list.
