Elucidating the Evolutionary Relationships among Bos taurus Digestive Organs Using Unigene Expression Data

Table 5

Selected enriched GO categories from the functional analysis of Bos taurus digestive body sites. Gene groups shared between body sites with relevant biological functions provide support to an evolutionary timeline of digestive development. *BP refers to biological process, MF molecular function, and CC cellular component.
