Table 3 Correlation between sequence identity and expression context conservation for 1-1 orthologs between all species pairs. P is the probability that the data set is a sample drawn from a distribution with correlation coefficient zero.

From: A global definition of expression context is conserved between orthologs, but does not correlate with sequence conservation
