  1. Gene name and descriptions are taken from the Ensembl database, probe sets without annotations were excluded. Positive fold change values indicate the gene is more expressed in migrating juveniles than in breeding adults, and vice versa for negative values. The p-values are corrected for multiple testing using the Benjamini & Hochberg (FDR) correction
