  1. Number of tap-root Illumina HiSeq 2000 reads per million reads (RPM) mapped on reference assemblies of P. sativa (Psa) and B. vulgaris (Bvu) corresponding to different cDNAs of functions involved in starch degradation. The closest homologous Arabidopsis thaliana loci by BLASTx are given in the table. GWD/PWD – α-glucan, water dikinase/phosphoglucan, water dikinase, DPE – disproportionating enzyme.
