No. Alignment position* R gene group Z-score P-value**
Non-TIR TIR
1 91 W D 4.72 2.41 × 10−4
2 98 W Y 4.71 2.83 × 10−8
3 146 S A 4.68 3.49 × 10−12

*Alignment position designates the amino acid position in the multiple sequence alignment presented in Additional file 2.

**P-value was used to evaluate the significance of the Z-score and assess whether the observed Z-score is sufficiently high to indicate an SDP.
