One of the most significant physiological challenges to neonatal and juvenile ruminants is the development and establishment of the rumen. Using a subset of RNA-Seq data from our high-resolution atlas of gene expression in sheep (Ovis aries) we have provided the first comprehensive characterisation of transcription of the entire gastrointestinal (GI) tract during the transition from pre-ruminant to ruminant. The dataset comprises 168 tissue samples from sheep at four different time points (birth, one week, 8 weeks and adult). Included here are the gene expression estimates as transcripts per million (TPM) for individual sheep (Table S4) and averaged across individuals (Table S1).
