  • a Percent identity calculated with GAP (GCG).

  • b K estimated number of substitutions per nucleotide site and its se, calculated with MEGA v2 (Kumar et al., 2001) and based on the K2P model.

  • c Time of divergence, calculated on the average substitution rate (r) of 6.96 × 10−9 substitutions per synonymous site per year for tomato (Moniz de Sa and Drouin, 1996).
