'Mitochondrial' denotes mitochondrial localization for all genes from this family in a species; 'non-mitochondrial' indicates a known localization to another subcellular compartment; 'mitochondrial and non-mitochondrial' indicates families with both mitochondrial and non-mitochondrial paralogs. See also Table S4 in Additional data file 1 for other duplication classes.
