Table 1 Pathways found to be differentially expressed between wild and domesticated stocks under control and stress conditions by both gage and romer packages. The direction of change shown describes the expression of the pathway in the domesticated fish relative to wild counterparts. The terms “2D” and “Mixed” are used to describe pathways in which genes showed bidirectional change. “Genes” refers to the number of genes included in the gene set test

From: Transcriptomic comparison of communally reared wild, domesticated and hybrid Atlantic salmon fry under stress and control conditions
