  1. 1While this manuscript was in the review process, Newbler v2.5 became publicly available. We reassembled the D. tertiolecta transcriptome using Newbler v2.5 and the outcomes of assembly in comparison with those obtain from v2.3 are presented as the Additional file 1. The differences observed between the outputs of two versions were not significant to impact the major or minor conclusions of this study, and are consistent with reports from Ewen-Campen et al. [77].
