Genes contained within subsets


The genes displayed in the gene table that is open by default on this page shows the peptide receptor-encoding genes that are not grouped into further subsets. You can view all genes in the subsets on this page by clicking on the plus sign next to the text "Genes contained within subsets", or you can navigate through to the individual gene family page for each subset.
