  1. Gene ontology was used to determine significant functional categories that were associated with higher levels of gene expression in SD, CXT and LD7 compared to LD21 and LD56 starlings. Only significant values are shown (p < 0.05) for candidate terms, see Additional file 6: Table S6 for full list.
