  • All Θ-values are ×104.

  • a Compiled in Zwick et al. (2000).

  • b Unweighed average Θ calculated from Table 3 in Kado et al. (2003).

  • c Based on silent (synonymous plus noncoding regions) substitutions.

  • d Corrected values (D. Pot, personal communication).

  • e Based on 12 accessions including 5 accessions previously used in genetic mapping (Col-0, Cvi-0, Ler, Nd-0, and Ws-0) and an additional 7 accessions (Ei-2, CS22491, Gü-0, Lz-0, Wei-0, Ws-0, and Yo-0) with a high average genetic distance to other accessions.
