Venn diagram of differentially co-expressed genes in both sugarcane cultivars after S. scitamineum inoculation at the same time points.

DR24, DR48 and DR120 denote differentially expressed gene sets obtained from “ROC”22 samples at 24, 48, and 120 h after S. scitamineum inoculation compared to controls 24 h after water inoculation, respectively; DY24, DY48 and DY120 denote differentially expressed gene sets obtained from Yacheng05-179 samples at 24, 48 and 120 h after S. scitamineum inoculation compared to control sample 24 h after water inoculation, respectively. All DEGs: differentially expressed genes.
