Based on the results in Table 2 from each group report (will be posted to canvas on 12/7), answer the question, “Is sex-biased gene expression more conserved or less conserved than unbiased expression?” In this context, “completely conserved” means it has the same sex-bias in all 5 species. For example, if female biased transcripts are conserved in 4.2 species on average, and unbiased genes are conserved in 3.8 species on average, then female biased expression is typically more conserved than unbiased expression.
