Fig. 2

The immune repertoire of D. neotestacea. This diagram is colour-coded to indicate: i) genes predicted to be present, and that were recovered in the transcriptome (light blue), ii) genes predicted to be absent in the transcriptome (because they are restricted to the subgenus Sophophora), and that were absent (dark blue), and iii) genes predicted to be present in the transcriptome, but were absent (red). The vast majority of immune genes matched predicted patterns of conservation in D. neotestacea, with the exception of the effector genes DptB and Mtk, and the Imd pathway inhibitor PGRP-SC1
