  1. A list of the 50 largest coexpression clusters evident in the pig gene expression atlas. Listed in the table are the 50 largest clusters of genes originating from our analysis of the pig expression atlas. Clusters are numbered according to their size (the largest being designated cluster 1) but are sorted here according to their grouping within the graph and the biology they represent. The first two columns give the cluster ID and number of transcripts present in the cluster and the following column provides a description of the average expression profile of all transcripts within the cluster. The final two columns aim to group clusters according to the class of tissues in which these genes are predominately expressed and the tissue, cell or pathway we believe they represent.
