  1. Table 1 The table shows the staggered design of probes that cover a 104 bp phyB deletion in the E124 A. thaliana mutant line. The number of probes in each staggered probe set that covered the deletion are shown (column titled ‘Designed’). The number and percent of ‘Designed’ probes that were experimentally detected with normalized log2 intensities of ≤ −0.4 are also shown.
