Summary of additional file 4 with total number of shared single copy nuclear genes present and distribution of count numbers for various taxonomic groups. The eurosids include members from both Rosids I and II; core eudicots are comprised of families considered basal to either the Eurosids or the Asterids such as the Caryophyllales and the Vitales; basal eudicots are represented by the ranunculids Eschscholzia californica and Papaver somniferum; Monocots include both members of the Poaceae and non-grass monocots; basal angiosperms include members of the magnoliids as well as Amborella trichopoda and Nuphar advena; gymnosperms includes conifers, cycads, Ginkgo and Gnetales; Vascular plants include representatives from ferns, mosses and hornwort; and green algae include members of both chlorophyte and charophyte green algal lineages.
