Table 6 Numbers and percentages of genes whose expression became fixed through the breeding process for six primary malting quality traits.

From: Transcriptome analysis of a barley breeding program examines gene expression diversity and reveals target genes for malting quality improvement

  ME GP S/T DP AA BG Total fixed
"Out of steep" 470 (67.8) 75 (10.8) 301 (43.4) 50 (7.2) 509 (73.4) 334 (48.2) 693 (100)
"3d of germination" 139 (67.5) 40 (19.4) 117 (56.8) 26 (12.6) 127 (61.7) 89 (43.2) 206 (100)
Common 64 (74.4) 17 (19.8) 50 (58.1) 17 (19.8) 60 (69.8) 40 (46.5) 86 (100)
Total 545 (67.0) 98 (12.0) 368 (45.3) 59 (7.3) 576 (70.8) 383 (47.1) 813 (100)
  1. Percentages are shown in parentheses. Common genes to both time points, as well as total number of correlated genes considering both time points are also shown. Note that a given transcript may correlate with multiple malt quality traits. ME: malt extract, GP: grain protein content, S/T: ratio of wort soluble protein to total malt protein, DP: diastatic power, AA: alpha-amylase activity, BG: malt beta-glucan content.
