  1. Enriched GO terms were calculated for the six treatments, and data from Ribeiro et al. [38] were used for naïve insect FB tissue. Values represent the fold enrichment of each GO term using as background the R. prolixus C3.3 gene set; only values of statistically enriched GO terms are shown (Bonferroni-corrected P-values < 0.05). See Table S7 for a complete list of the genes used in this analysis and their corresponding transcripts in the de novo transcriptome presented here
