Table 1 Breakdown of full genome sequences sampled during three separate evolution experiments and the results of neutrality tests indicate no significant deviation from neutral evolution in any of the samples.

From: Experimental evidence indicating that mastreviruses probably did not co-diverge with their hosts

  1. a All p-values are > 0.1 (i.e. there is no significant deviation from neutrality) for all tests other than for Fu and Li's F* with the full SSRV dataset which has a p-value between 0.05 and 0.1.
