Shown from left to right are: a simple phylogeny97 describing important novelties along the evolutionary trajectory to termites (numbers in brackets are genome sizes); life cycles; differential expression (log2(fold change) > 1 and P < 0.05; DESeq279; sample sizes are shown in the last column) between workers and queens (between nymphs and adult females in B. germanica) of the selected gene families (Desat, desaturases; Elong, elongases; H’ween, Halloween genes) and total numbers within all genes; the numbers denote total numbers of genes in each gene family.
