  1. The table shows the total number of genes whose basal expression is higher in the resistant CO441 or susceptible CO354 genotype within each category, considering the following filters: FPKM >5 in CO441 and 0 ≤ FPKM <0.5 in CO354, and FPKM > 5 in CO354 and 0 ≤ FPKM < 0.5 in CO441, respectively. Defense-related genes considered for the comparison are those functionally categorized as ‘cell wall’, ‘resistance’, ‘response to stress’ and ‘secondary metabolism’.
