  1. A statistical analysis was performed to identify GO terms over- or under-represented in the annotated genes of this collection as compared to their distribution in the annotated genes of the whole genome. GOStat software [22] was used for this analysis, using a p-value threshold of 0.01. Only 159 genes have GO annotations among the 243 genes of the collection (3241 genes have GO annotations throughout the whole genome). This table reports all non-redundant over- or under-represented terms (i.e. all over- or under-represented GO terms that do not generalize another over- or under-represented term) in the three ontologies (cellular component, biological process, and molecular function). All terms were over-represented except for the term "defense response" (biological process) that was under-represented.
