  1. Number of sORFs divided per genomic region and for which certain in silico and/or expression evidence can be found. Included are total number of sOFs with high coding potential (according to sORFfinder), number of sORFs having scores above certain thresholds (according to SVM analysis), number of sORFs which show ribosome profiling expression and number of sORFs for which in silico coding as well as expression evidence is available.
  2. a Total number of sORFs with high coding potential according to sORFfinder.
  3. b Total number of sORFs classified as coding by SVMlight.
  4. c Pcod is the coding probability score as predicted by SVMlight.
  5. d sORFs with mapped ribosome profiles, attaining sequence read coverage > 75% of the total ORF (based on cycloheximide treatment), and ribosome profile hits at the ORF start site (based on harringtonine treated samples).
  6. e Ribo sORFs (see under d for description) classified as coding by SVMlight.
