Elucidating the Evolutionary Relationships among Bos taurus Digestive Organs Using Unigene Expression Data

Table 4

Pairwise comparison of similarity among Bos taurus, Homo sapiens, and Mus musculus digestive body sites using the Jaccard index of similarity. Values closer to 1.0 denote a higher similarity in expressed genes between two body sites.
