Table S1. Orthologous genes between maize, barley, sorghum and rice. Table S2. MPSS transcript data for maize genes in the 12 core tissues. Figure S1. A parsimonious tree showing maize homoeologues with sorghum orthologues. This tree includes the maize homoeologues (green), and their sorghum (orange) and rice (purple) orthologues. This tree was produced to illustrate the relative distances between the maize homoeologues and their sorghum orthologues using amino acid sequence and using rice as the outgroup. It was produced as per Figure 1.
