(a) Examples of tandem duplications. Examples shown are for the chromosome and contig regions containing HKT1, CBL10 and MYB47. (b) A Venn diagram showing shared and specific tandem duplication events in T. parvula and A. thaliana. We defined a tandem duplication event as the presence of more than one gene with the same annotation in one location or more than one gene in one location separated by not more than one other gene with a different annotation. The numbers of genes involved in the duplication events are given in parentheses. Tandem duplications of genes with the same annotations in both species are counted as shared events. Comparison of the GO 'biological processes' (c) and 'molecular function' categories (d) between T. parvula ORFs and A. thaliana cDNAs for genes showing tandem duplications. The radial axes are the percentages of cDNA or ORFs in each GO category compared to the number of total tandem duplicated cDNA or ORFs. Categories showing significant differences are marked as *P < 0.05 or **P < 0.01. The number of tandem duplicated cDNAs or ORFs in each GO category and P values are listed in Supplementary Table 8. The complete list of tandem duplicated cDNAs and ORFs is presented as Supplementary Table 9.
