  • Shown are genes previously reported to be naturally variable among Arabidopsis accessions in foliar tissue and that generate a known phenotype.

  • a Denotes the phenotype altered by the variation.

  • b Lists whether the variation is expression based or not, as described in the literature (see text for references). Polymorphisms labeled as nonsense or missense have the corresponding sequence polymorphism and are not known to alter expression in plants.

  • c Indicates if the gene was identified as being naturally variable (satisfying H02) by either Holm's procedure or FDR in our analyses.
