  1. 1The genomes used in this study are identical to those used in [37].
  2. 2Two independent analyses were conducted on different dates, and similar outcomes were obtained. The more recent result was reported.
  3. 3The genome used in this study is identical to that used in [79].
  4. 4For genes with multiple isoforms, the longest CDS was extracted using an in-house Perl script and used for the analysis.
