Partitioning the variation in mammalian substitution rates

Molecular Biology and Evolution

Nick G C Smith, Adam Eyre-Walker

Abstract

We have used analysis of variance to partition the variation in synonymous and amino acid substitution rates between three effects (gene, lineage, and a gene-by-lineage interaction) in mammalian nuclear and mitochondrial genes. We find that gene effects are stronger for amino acid subst...read more
