Comparison of predicted subcellular localization (targetP) and expression (gene correlator on Genevestigator website) of tandem repeats of LEA genes. The coding sequences of the genes were aligned using BLAST 2 SEQUENCES to quantitate the sequence differences between the genes in a pair (gene 1 and gene 2). To test for diversification in expression patterns, the gene correlator function on the Genevestigator website was used to compare expression patterns from publicly available expression profiling data.

*this gene pair is not included on the Affymetrix ATH1 array and therefore no correlation value could be calculated.
