  • a S. lycopersicum concatenated coding regions.

  • b S. pennellii concatenated coding regions.

  • c Region-specific substitution rate (substitutions per site per year) calculated according to the fossil record estimation of 120 MYA for the divergence between Arabidopsis and Solanaceae (Bell et al., 2005; Magallon and Sanderson, 2005).

  • d Species divergence time in MYA (±confidence interval).

  • e Concatenated coding regions of genes 2, 4, 6, 7, 8, 9, 12, 13, and 14.

  • f Concatenated coding regions of genes 2, 3, 4, 6, 7, 8, 9, 11, 12, and 14.

  • g Concatenated coding regions of genes 2 to 9.
