  1. Circadian genes refer to meta-analysis of circadian regulated genes (Covington et al., 2008). The table shows the Arabidopsis treatment (with or without circadian genes) against two leaf types apical and mature leaves and the pairwise comparisons between time points (morning, midday and dusk). The results show number of homologs and results of hypergeometric test, which is Bonferroni corrected for multiple testing p-values; significance is shown by * < 0.05, ** < 0.01, *** < 0.001 and ns > 0.05. The top row shows number of R. stricta genes DE and the remainder of the table shows numbers of homologous genes between R. stricta and Arabidopsis.
