  1. Evidence codes — IDA: Inferred from Direct Assay (i.e. first time published); TAS: Traceable Author Statement (i.e., a direct report exists in the literature) 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 [22].
