  1. The number of ESTs was calculated by amalgamating libraries from the same tissues.
  2. a Other miscellaneous species were Actinidia setosa (1,020 from stem), A. hemsleyana (5,101 from roots), A. polygama (1,348 from petal) and A. indochinensis (74 from petal).
  3. b See Additional file 2a for full details of libraries and tissues.
  4. c Empty cells had no ESTs sequenced.
  5. d Cell refers to cell culture.
