  1. aEvidence codes- IDA inferred from direct assay, TAS traceable author statement, NAS non-traceable author statement (i.e., not directly observed for the living, isolated sample, but based on a generally accepted property for the species, or anecdotal evidence). These evidence codes are from the Gene Ontology project [29]
