Table S2. Schematic overview of the (predicted) introns in genomic sequences from the GHF5 endoglucanase genes. For the intron identifiers, we adhered to the nomenclature proposed by Kyndt et al. (2008) [22]. Identifiers such as 1½ and 5½ were used for novel introns positioned between introns 1 and 2, 5 and 6, etc. The colour scheme for the phase of the introns is explained below this Table. Length of the introns (in bp) is given inside each box.
