Additional file 1:

Gene ontology table (generic GO slim subset for molecular function). Hierarchical classification of the GO slim subset for molecular function. Indented terms are children of parent terms listed above. For each term, the number of A. burtoni assembled sequences that match genes to which Gene Ontology annotations have been assigned at, or below, this general level is given. Note that genes may be assigned to more than one term and child terms may have more than one parent term. For parent terms, the total number of A. burtoni assembled sequences is given in parentheses. Match means that the annotation derives from a gene that was the "best hit" for the A. burtoni sequence at and e-value < 10-12.

Directed acyclic graph (DAG) of the cichlid specific Gene ontology (GO) slim for molecular function. The graph shows the cichlid specific GO slim for molecular function. Molecular function terms were selected for inclusion in the ontologies such that leaf nodes include approximately 20 annotated genes. Circle size represents relative number of genes annotated to each parent node.

ESTs with higher p-distances. The table shows ESTs where the p-distance between Homo sapiens and haplochromine cichlid amino acid sequences is significantly higher as compared to other fish species (Danio rerio, Takifugu rubripes, Tetraodon nigroviridis and Oncorhynchus mykiss). Annotation means that the Homo sapiens gene was "best hit" for the cichlid sequence (and e-value < 10-50).

ESTs with smaller p-distances. The table shows ESTs where the p-distance between Homo sapiens and haplochromine cichlid amino acid sequences is significantly smaller as compared to other fish species (Danio rerio, Takifugu rubripes, Tetraodon nigroviridis, and Oncorhynchus mykiss). Annotation means that the Homo sapiens gene was "best hit" for the Cichlid sequence (and e-value < 10-50).
