Faster-X Evolution of Gene Expression in Drosophila

Figure 3

Faster-X expression evolution for genes expressed in male, but not female, reproductive tissues.

Correlations of expression between D. melanogaster (mel) and either D. yakuba (yak) or D. ananassae (ana) are plotted for each chromosome arm using expression measurements from whole females (top) or males (bottom). Genes were included if they are narrowly expressed in non-reproductive tissues (black), female reproductive tissues (purple, top), or male reproductive tissues (purple, bottom). Graphs are the same as in Figure 1.
