  1. a The average number of nucleotide substitutions per nonsynonymous site and per synonymous site for all pairwise comparisons within each sampling point. b The average number of nucleotide substitutions per nonsynonymous site and per synonymous site for all pairwise comparisons for consensus of baseline for baseline sample (B-B) and follow-up samples (B-W1-2-3/4 and B-L). Ka/Ks indicate the ratio of nonsynonymous to synonymous nucleotide substitutions. All data represent mean ± SEM. The statistical significance of comparisons among individual samples or between the two groups of patients were analysed with non parametric Mann-Whitney U test.*, P = 0.05 for comparison between the two groups of patient. , P = 0.01 for comparison between the two groups of patient. , P = 0.05 for comparison between the two groups of patient.
