  1. The table shows the number of genes on the whole array and within the clusters as well as the number of Arabidopsis homologues and the number of MIPS function classifications identified.
  2. a FB = full bloom; EFD = Early fruit development; MD = Mid-development; R = ripening; R1, R2, R3 = Ripening subclusters 1, 2 and 3; EFD1, EFD2 = early fruit development subclusters 1 and 2.
  3. b The number of apple ESTs represented by the features on the array.
  4. c The number of apple genes, tentative contigs or singletons identified by the ESTs on the array.
  5. d Apple genes were compared with the Arabidopsis predicted protein set using BLASTx to identify similar Arabidopsis genes, the best match (with expect value better than 1 × e-5) was used for subsequent functional analysis.
  6. e The number of unique Arabidopsis genes identified by BLASTx using the apple genes, in many cases multiple apple genes had strongest similarity to the same Arabidopsis gene, thus fewer Arabidopsis genes were identified than apple genes.
  7. f Functional categories found for the Arabidopsis genes were identified using the MIPS dataset funcat 1.3.
