The transcript divergence of six paralogous pairs of genes within a given tissue in different developmental stages. The upper triangles showed the expression of the lift genes of the paralog gene pairs, and the lower triangle the expression of the right genes of the paralog gene pairs. The raw average relative expressions were in the Additional file 5D. R, H, C, E, U, S, T1, T2, T3, T4, F: the root, hypocotyl, cotyledon, epicotyls, unifoliolate leaf, the stem, the first trifoliolate leaf, the second trifoliolate leaf, the third trifoliolate leaf, the fourth trifoliolate leaf and the flower, respectively. And P1, P2, and P3: seven, fourteen and twenty one days after the onset of flowering respectively. The geometric means of GmSKIP16 and GmUNKI transcripts were used as the reference transcript.
