Table 5 Multivariate model fitting of genomic- and functional propertiesa of genes to their evolutionary propertiesb for male accessory gland protein genes [33].

From: Functional and evolutionary correlates of gene constellations in the Drosophila melanogaster genome that deviate from the stereotypical gene architecture
