Fig. 1.

The hierarchical clustering based on differentially expressed genes in Tibetan sheep skin between white and black coat color (top 30). 1W, 2W and 3W are the white skin samples from three Tibetan sheep; 1B, 2B and 3B are the black skin samples from three Tibetan sheep.

Fig. 2.

GO analysis of differentially expressed genes in Tibetan sheep with white skin vs. black skin samples.

Fig. 3.

Relative expression of three differentially expressed genes. * P < 0.05, ** P < 0.01.

Fig. 4.

Relative expression of six differentially expressed genes. * P < 0.05, ** P < 0.01.

Fig. 5.

Relative expression of four differentially expressed genes. * P < 0.05, ** P < 0.01.
