  1. 1Number of "origin gene" pairs found in any given chromosome, as defined in the text.
  2. 2Number of chromosomes for which the specified number of origin gene pairs is found within 1% of the chromosome length from POML. When multiple origin gene pairs are found near POML it indicates that the gene pairs are close together on the chromosome.
  3. 3Total number of chromosomes with that number of annotated gene pairs regardless of whether or not any pair is close to POML.
