Supplementary table 1: shows grouping of genes in different clusters based on percent identity in pairwise comparison. Ten clusters were made depending upon percentage identity observed between the genes ranging from 80% (minimum identity observed for a given gene between any two species) to 100%. Genes which showed 100% identity in comparison were considered as highly conserved and the genes showing less than 95% identity at least once in the comparison were considered highly divergent. These highly divergent genes were further explored at nucleotide as well as at protein level to probe the variations in detail. A total of 11 highly divergent genes were found whereas the number of highly conserved genes varied from 26 (for species pair: N. tomentosiformis and S. lycopersicum) to 107 (for N. sylvestris and N. tabacum). Most of the tRNA genes were found to be highly conserved. Genes accD, cemA, clpP, ndhA, rpl32, rpl36, rps16, sprA, trnA-UGC, trnL-UAA and ycf1 were found to be highly diverged.
