  1. Genes were categorized by their correlation with lesion length. Constitutive lesion genes were those whose expression was positively correlated with lesion length on both 3 and 13 days after inoculation (DAI), and smaller lesions displayed negative correlation with lesion length at both days. Putative priming genes were positively correlated with lesion length at 3 DAI but negatively correlated at 13 DAI. Putative susceptibility genes were negatively correlated with lesion length at 3 DAI, but positively correlated with lesion length at 13 DAI. Symbols: positive correlation (+), negative correlation (−), no significant correlation (NS)
