Larval/pupal represents the pooled larval and pupal stages. None: No threshold; >twofold, >fourfold, >eightfold: greater than twofold, fourfold, or eightfold proportion of representation relative to other stages, respectively; Unique: genes that are unique to a single developmental stage (see Methods).
