Table 1 The chromosomal position and sequence description of candidate defense hub genes

From: Weighted gene co-expression network analysis unveils gene networks associated with the Fusarium head blight resistance in tetraploid wheat

  1. Genes with the top 10% intramodular connectivity in gene networks significantly correlated with Type II FHB resistance (FHB-M1, FHB-M2, FHB-M3, FHB-M4 and FHB-Dev) are considered as hub genes. The module membership (MM) indicates the intramodular connectivity ranging between −1 to 1 and reflects correlation between the expression of module eigengenes (ME) and the module members (genes). The chromosomal position of genes (chr:position) was extracted from the International Wheat Genome Sequencing Consortium (IWGSC) RefSeq v1.0 assembly. Uniprot IDs and gene names were assigned to each gene from IWGSC RefSeq v1.0 annotation or by reciprocal blast search of the IWGSC RefSeq v.1.0 sequence against TrEMBL protein database. Highlighted genes were located within the interval of FHB resistance QTL reported for the cv. Strongfield/Blackbird population by Sari et al. [19]
