Supplementary Material

Supplemental Figure 1 describes the distribution of synonymous substitution ratios of genes calculated using the YN00 method. Substitution ratios show the number of synonymous substitutions over synonymous substitution sites. Supplemental Figure 2 illustrates the distribution of nonsynonymous substitution ratios of genes calculated as nonsynonymous substitutions over nonsynonymous substitution sites. Supplemental Table 1 shows a list of orthologous gene pairs showing signs of positive selection (dN/dS > 1; YN00 method). Values of dN/dS estimated from NG 86 and ML94 methods, as well as functional annotations, are also presented.
