  1. All clean reads obtained from the four libraries from adaxial (samples aD_1 and aD_2) and abaxial (samples aB_1 and aB_2) petals of stage A1 Iberis flowers were mapped against the re-assembled contigs. Only reads that map uniquely to one locus, highlighted in bold print, were used for the calculation of gene expression. This applies to 63-64% of total reads from the four libraries.
