  1. Sequences of known flowering genes from public databases were matched with the garlic abundant transcriptome. The expression level (FPKM) was calculated using the expectation maximization method, and TMM normalization (trimmed mean of M-value normalization method) was applied (see Materials and Methods).
  2. *Numerous sequences with significant similarity were identified.
