Figure 1

Heat map of clustering of 4,550 genes expressed in silkworm brain tissues. Genes expressed with signal intensity more than 800 were included in this analysis. Clustering was done using Cluster 3.0 software. The colors in the map display the relative values of all tiles within the four selected developmental stages; Green indicates the lowest expression, black indicates the intermediate expression, and red indicates the highest expression. The numerical values give the actual values on a log 2 scale, which are associated with each color. The color scale bar is shown at the top right corner of the figure. A: Genes clustered by the given 4 developmental stages (clustering type: hierarchical clustering, Distance metric: Pearson correlation). B: Genes grouped into four clusters on the basis of the similarity of expression (clustering type: K-means clustering, Distance metric: Pearson correlation). The number of the expressed genes and the percentage in each cluster are indicated.
