  1. The list of GO terms covered by this analysis is intended to provide a complete landscape of GO predictability at the three levels of protein functionality in Embryophyta plants. For classification purposes, classes marked with an asterisk (*) were redefined. The number of samples in those categories corresponds to the sequences associated to that class and none of its also listed descendants.
