TBLASTN comparison of rice versus other cereal proteins from GenBank. A set of full-length nonredundant cereal protein sequences was compiled using all available sequences from GenBank. Pairs of proteins with greater than 90% identity over an alignment of at least 100 amino acids were considered redundant and one of the two was removed.
