  1. Validation of differentially expressed genes between WRR and XH chickens by RT-PCR.
  2. The data presented indicate the relative mRNA expression of both microarray and qRT-PCR.
  3. Positive values mean that the gene was up-regulated when WRR chickens were compared with XH chickens. Similarly, a negative number means that the gene was down-regulated.
