Genes in a life-cycle transcriptomic analysis of D. melanogaster [15] were compared to honey bee larval proteomics data in this report by finding homologs common to these studies. Significant matches (see Materials and methods for criteria) were assessed by comparing the slope values calculated between days 1 and 4: a protein is marked 'same' if the sign of the slope was the same and had a difference no greater than 0.75; otherwise, they are marked as 'different'.
