  • The Affymetrix ATH1 microarray detects transcripts for genes on all five Arabidopsis chromosomes (I–V) as well as additional non-nuclear-encoded genes. The control probe sets are not included.

  • a The number of genes per chromosome or group whose transcripts are detected on the Affymetrix ATH1 microarray. Total is the sum for the entire genome.

  • b The number of genes from each chromosome or group whose transcript accumulation was controlled by at least one eQTL and the percentage of genes from each chromosome whose transcript accumulation was controlled by at least one eQTL.

  • c The number of genes per chromosome whose transcripts had a significant eQTL in the cis position, defined as within 3.5 cM of the gene's genetic position, and the percentage of genes determined by only those genes with at least one detectable eQTL.

  • d Genes with an eQTL on this chromosome lists the number of genes within the genome whose transcripts were significantly controlled by at least one eQTL on this specific chromosome.

  • e The number of significant eQTL detected on this specific chromosome.
