KEGG enrichment pathways analysis among the identified differentially expressed genes for naïve (N) versus Eimeria maxima (EM) infected groups. a Upregulated genes. b Downregulated genes. The y-axis shows the name of the pathway and the x-axis shows the Rich factor. Dot size represents the number of different genes and the color indicates the q-value. The Rich factor is the proportion of the number of differentially expressed genes and the number of all annotated genes in a given pathway. The greater the Rich factor, the higher the degree of enrichment. The q-value is the adjusted P-value after multiple hypothesis testing, and its range is [0, 1]. The closer the q-value is to zero, the more significant the enrichment. The top 20 most significant enriched pathways were chosen in the KEGG scatter plot, unless the enriched pathway count was less than 20, in which case all pathways were included in the plot
