Additional file 1: Figure S1:

Position specific nucleotide diversity. Exons are marked grey; the regions containing exon sequences for the chloroplast transit peptied (cTP) as well as for the domains GT5 and GT1 are indicated. A: AtSSI; B: AtSSII; C: AtSSIII; D: AtSSIV; E: AtGBSS. Figure S2. Nucleotide polymorphisms in the coding sequence of starch synthases among A. thaliana accessions. Dots indicate identity to the reference Col-0. Nucleotide substitutions shared with A. lyrata are marked with asterisks above the position. Amino acid sustitutions are shown in the lower part of the column. The upper symbol indicates the amino acid in Col-0, while the lower is the substituted one. The GT5 and GT domains as well as the starch synthase III specific domains D1, D2, and D3 (see text) are highlighted in grey. A: AtSSI; B: AtSSII; C: AtSSIII; D: AtSSIV; E: AtGBSS.
