  1. Samples were assigned to five subsets according to plant phenotype or to the time after herbicide application. Subsets containing samples collected at the same time (BEFORE, + 2.5H or + 6H) enabled to assess gene stability between phenotypes (i.e. phenotype effect). Subsets containing samples from plants with a same phenotype (SENSITIVE or RESISTANT) enabled to assess the effect of the time after herbicide application on gene stability.
