Positive selection in bird and mammal bone-associated genes. All results from evolutionary analyses were corrected for multiple testing using the q-value. The bars in the four inner circles show which of the alternate models (listed in the lower right corner) are most likely. The genes listed on the left of the circle are from the bird analyses and those on the right are the results for mammals. In the four inner circles, the presence of the bars represent positively selected genes after running the models M2a vs M1a. The bars closest to the gene names indicate the number of positively selected genes (posterior probabilities > = 0.95), each tick represents 5 positively selected sites under Bayesian Empirical Bays post-hoc analysis
