a, Principal component analysis (PCA) of predicted DNA methylation patterns among 2,664 1-to-1 orthologues, estimated via CpGo/e. The spheres represent the positions of the species within the 3D PCA, with the distance between the spheres representing the similarity of CpGo/e between species at each orthologue; the curves are the distribution of CpGo/e, with the dotted line showing CpGo/e = 1. b, Tag clouds of enriched (P < 0.05; Fisher test, weight algorithm, topGO96) GO terms (biological processes) among the lower (left) and the higher quartile (right) of CpGo/e within termites (top) and B. germanica (bottom). For termites, genes were merged from all three species for analysing GO term enrichment. Number of enriched genes and total number of genes in topGO enrichment tests (low CpG o/e /high CpGo/e/gene universe): B. germanica (3,291/1,842/11,409); termites (6,754/4,600/25,910). High CpGo/e indicates a low level of DNA methylation and vice versa.
