  • Condensed list of GO categories associated with genes up-regulated and down-regulated under stress. Gene lists correspond to each separate GO term and in cases in which genes were associated with multiple terms these GO terms are grouped. The number of gene duplicates is given in parentheses with fold changes relative to control conditions. GO, Gene Ontology; FDR, false discovery rate.
