  1. Low quality reads were filtered before assembly, and host sequences were filtered both before and after assembly. Unigenes remaining after removal of host plant and non-plant sequences were aligned with BLASTx to sequences detected in any other PPGP transcriptome library of Triphysaria versicolor ( Unigenes with less than 95% pairwise identity to either host or to other Triphysaria libraries were sorted further if a BLASTx search of the NR ( database yielded alignments of 1e-10 or stronger. The remaining unclassified unigenes were submitted to OrthoMCL DB and InterProScan. Unigenes that remained unclassified after the final screen are called “no hit” unigenes.
