Table 3 Gene structure comparison between human and mouse.

From: Non-random retention of protein-coding overlapping genes in Metazoa

  OG Pairs Conserved in Hs and Mm (282) Human OG Pairs Adjacent in Mm (226) Mouse OG Pairs Adjacent in Hs (171) Non-Overlapping Genes

  1. The number of overlapping gene pairs in each analyzed dataset is reported in brackets. CDS overlaps refer to the overlapping genes whose CDS coordinates are superimposed, while UTR overlaps refer to those cases where the gene coordinates (calculated from transcript start to transcript end) are superimposed.
