   aAll libraries are from the trichomes of leaves except for stem, which is the total trichomes from stem.
   bThe numbers with a "k" (for 1000's) are 454 data, whereas the others are Sanger.

Summary of Type information
     Same type/same species involving 454 were assembled into consensus sequences for use in Cross species assemblies above.
