  • a For this gene, the best BLAST hit of the D. bruxellensis sequence in the NR database is an unannotated or hypothetical gene, and the functional annotation given here is taken from the highest annotated hit, where the bit score of the annotated hit was at least 90% that of the best hit and sequence comparison indicates that the genes are homologs.
