Rank abundance analysis of host and parasite transcriptome. In each graph, host and parasite genes are ranked from left to right in order of diminishing FPKM. Each vertical bar represents a gene. Grey and black bars represent genes encoding ribosomal functions and non-ribosomal functions, respectively. The 500 genes with the highest FPKM are represented in the two bar graphs on the left: top, S. scrofa; bottom, C. parvum. To convey a clearer view of the function of highly transcribed genes in relation to ribosome-related functions, the 100 genes with the highest FPKM value are shown right. Note the high proportion of genes encoding ribosomal function in C. parvum as compared to the host cell transcriptome. The steeper slope of the ranked C. parvum FPKM values is consistent with a lower Shannon diversity identified as described in the text
