Transporters are categorized as "Nitrogen", "Carbon", and "Phosphorus" using GO annotation associated with the indicated metabolic compounds transported in the mycorrhizal metabolome. "# Genomic" indicates the total number of gene models with a specific GO annotation in the aspen or L. bicolor genome. "Expressed" is the percent of expressed vs. total transporter genes for the indicated organism in the mycorrhizal transcriptome. "pVal" is the CBD-pValue for the enrichment of a transporter annotation in the set of "Expressed" relative to the "# Genomic".
