Discordances between optical map and IRGSP sequence data. This file is a table with the discordance types displayed in Fig. 4, and their chromosome positions in base pairs based on the comparison between optical map and the IRGSP genome sequence. In the note column, some information about the alignment between optical map and IRGSP sequence are provided for some of the discordance types. Additional data useful for sequence finishing is available at our website: http://www.lmcg.wisc.edu/research/rice/ webcite
