  1. The relative expression of miR genes depending on the host-plant (on rice compared to corn) in either the C or the R strain, or depending on the genetic background (SfR compared to SfC) was calculated according to [57]
  2. P(H1) Probability of alternate hypothesis that difference between sample and control groups is due only to chance. The miRs with a star correspond to * Novel miRs having conserved seed region only
