Identification of conserved vascular gene groups across different vascular systems. Microarray data from Arabidopsis, poplar and rice were analyzed for classification of vascular related genes. By homology analysis, conserved vascular genes in three species were identified, which form 107 groups. Homology analysis between species is performed by BLAST program with E ≤ 1e-50.
