  1. 1 Number of Toxoplasma ESTs in dbEST, unique SAGE tags in TgSAGEDB, and probesets on the microarrays.
  2. 2 Values in parentheses reflect a more stringent criteria for evidence of expression: > = 3 SAGE tags or ESTs vs. > = 1; 150% above background vs. > 0% above background; 5% FDR vs. 10% FDR for Affymetrix arrays.
  3. 3 Some genes have more than 1 associated probeset, differing in degree of potential cross hybridization.
