Figure 4

Relationship between measures of selection and dispersion. In blue, log(ω) is plotted against log(ρ) for aligned pairs of orthologous proteins shared between human and mouse (N = 11,894). The plot in red features the same y-axis but shows the synonymous dispersion ratio (see text) on the x-axis. The linear trend for log(ρ) vs. log(ω) is highly significant (black line; p < 2.2e-16) whereas the plot in red shows no significant linear trend.
