Table 2 Summary of differentially expressed (DE) contigs among the comparisons of the three RNA-seq libraries from Porphyra umbilicalis. Maximum fold difference is calculated as the fold-change in RPKM, or the reads per kilobase of exon model per million mapped reads, and excludes fold-changes in reads that were not present in one library

From: Organism-environment interactions and differential gene expression patterns among open-coastal and estuarine populations of Porphyra umbilicalis Kützing (Rhodophyta) in the Northwest Atlantic
