Table 1 Fifty A. thaliana gene families Gene family names or typical gene annotations are given in the first column. The second column contains abbreviated names or mnemonics for the families. Unnamed gene families are given PIR family numbers (e.g. HypProt131). The third column indicates the number of predicted gene sequences included in final A. thaliana gene family phylogenies.
