Coevolution analysis of GroEL protein with its paralogs in Chlamydiae. We used the mutual information criterion (MIC) to compare the coevolution of GroEL1 vs GroEL2 (black bars) to that of GroEL1 vs GroEL3 (grey bars). We built ten MIC categories and calculated the percentage of pairs showing significant coevolution within each category (number of pairs in that MIC category divided by the total number of coevolving pairs for the comparison) in each comparison. We estimated the mean percentage of pairs per MIC category and compared both sets of data.
