  1. aThe total number of transcripts for each species.
  2. bIn cases where two BDGPs share one BDG, then the shared BDG was counted twice in the total number of BDGs. Such BDGs are defined as redundant BDGs.
  3. cBecause a single gene may produce multiple BDTs, the numbers of translated unique BDGs represent BDGs corresponding to non-redundant unique BDTs
  4. dNew unique BDGs are BDGs identified by the modified search model but not detected by the traditional search model.
