Table 2 Comparison of evolutionary rates among different hosts

From: Evolution of the M gene of the influenza A virus in different host species: large-scale sequence analysis

   Av1 Av2 awithin each host
  Evolutionary rate (number of substitutions/site/year) 5.76 × 10-4 1.63 × 10-4  
Hu1 7.34 × 10-4 0.020 < 0.001  
Hu2 12.8 × 10-4 < 0.001 < 0.001 < 0.001
Sw1 9.23 × 10-4 < 0.001 < 0.001  
Sw2 18.4 × 10-4 < 0.001 < 0.001 < 0.001

  1. List of P-values for differential evolutionary rates.
  2. aP-values for lineages of same host: Hu1 vs. Hu2 and Sw1 vs. Sw2.
  3. Bold values are those deemed to show significantly positive selection (P < 0.05).
