  • a Caenorhabditis elegans, Drosophila melanogaster, Strongylocentrotus purpuratus, Mus musculus, or Homo sapiens.

  • b Arabidopsis thaliana, Vicia faba, or Oryza sativa.

  • c Histones and histone-like proteins are short; therefore BLAST scores are comparatively low and e values are high. Species listed as best matches are Podospora anserina, Aspergillus nidulans, Physarum polycephalum, Vicia faba, Sordaria macrospora, Candida albicans, and Hypocrea jecorina.
