Table 2: Transcripts with similar correlative patterns to that of different biochemical parameters were identified using Pearson Correlation module in Genespring GX Software. Only genes with Pearson’s correlation coefficient ( -value) are shown. The Gene ID and closest BLAST N hit (cut-off -value ; DNA database release 144) of each transcript are indicated. Species abbreviations—Os: Orzya sativa, Ta: Triticum aestivum; At: Arabidopsis thaliana; Hv: Hordeum vulgare; Sc: Secale cereale; Tt: Triticum turgidum subs durum; Tp: Thinopyrum ponticum; Zm: Zea mays.
