  • a Clemson University Genomics Institute tomato BAC number (http://www.genome.clemson.edu/).

  • b Numbers in parentheses indicate whether the predicted genes have a match with sequences in the Arabidopsis genomic sequence or are based solely on prediction by the gene prediction program FGENESH (Arabidopsis match/FGENESH prediction). BAC 47I13 contains three copia- and three gypsy-like retrotransposon reverse transcriptases, whereas 2O7 contains only ty3–gypsy-like transposon sequences (reverse transcriptases).
