Conserved sex-specific gene expression in thrips. Genome-assembled transcripts derived from RNA-seq reads for females, males, and pre-adults (larval and pupal combined) of Frankliniella occidentalis (this study, PRJNA203209) were compared to transcripts generated de novo from publicly available RNA-seq data sets for Frankliniella cephalica (PRJNA219559), Gynaikothrips ficorum (PRJNA219563), and Thrips palmi (PRJNA219609). Venn diagrams depict the number of transcript sequences associated with a females, b males, and c pre-adult stages of thrips. Highly enriched sequences (> 1000 unique reads and > 4-fold difference) conserved in d female and e male thrips. Open circles in d and e represent highly enriched gene ontology (GO) terms; especially notable genes are labeled. See methods for enrichment criteria and Additional file 9 for sex-specific genes sets and associated normalized (TPM = transcripts per million) fold change values (relative to the other sex)
