Brassicaceae = Brassicaceae specific LSGs. Arabidopsis thaliana = Arabidopsis thaliana-only LSGs. SNPs resulting in internal stop codons = ISC. SNPs resulting in missing start codons = MSC. Support for expression at the locus provided by overlapping EST, cDNA or microarray probeset. Support for gene model expression provided by an EST or cDNA consistent with the of gene model (as listed by TAIR).
