Figure 1

Substitution rates per locus. Pairwise distances of each of five non-coding partitions of nuclear loci plotted against combined pairwise distances with linear model regressions added, showing differences in evolutionary rates among loci. Closed diamonds, RAG-1 3rd positions; open squares, GPD3-5; closed triangles, ADH5; open circles, FGB7; and open triangles, myo-2. Note faster rate of RAG-1 3rd positions than introns.
