The descriptions of samples used for microarray experiments in AtGenExpress [35] were obtained from the TAIR where the raw data files were retrieved [71]. The development stages for these seed samples range from four to 12 days after pollination, encompassing the accumulation phase of both oils and storage proteins [1].
