Mean values of expression, gene length, frequency of optimal codon usage (Fop) and base composition, measured as GC-content at synonymous sites (GC3s) for genes sampled from four genotypes of Eichhornia

For each of the genotypes, the genes were divided into two categories based on expression level including the top (‘high’) and bottom (‘low’) and 10th percentile of expression. The values for all loci are summarized in the category, ‘total’.
