  1. aGenes with > 0.2% average pairwise dissimilarity and > 0.0015 π values were selected
  2. bCoding sequences were aligned using MUSCLE and translational alignment in Geneious Prime
  3. cKa/Ks values (ω) were calculated according to Yang and Nielsen (2000) [43] using the yn00 program in the PAML 4 package
