Supplementary tables and figures. Table S1 lists the genome builts for five organisms with respective Ensembl versions integrated into Ortho2ExpressMatrix at the time of publication. Table S2 lists the implemented Microarray platforms and respective and GEO platform identifiers at the time of publication. Table S3 reports the assessment of numbers of proteins in families and protein families for pairs of organisms of four protein family inferring approaches basing on sequence data of Ensembl version 59, Table S4 reports the assessment of Ensembl 49. Figure S5 displays O2EM output examples for miRBase and TargetScan families. Figure S6 displays variations of the ratio threshold as significance criterion, which is an important O2EM selection parameter.
