Table 4 Coding sequence (CDS) length and indel rate within the Drosophila and tephritid clades for transformer

From: Molecular evolution of Drosophila Sex-lethal and related sex determining genes

Clade CDS Length Indel ratea
  Mean Variance Mean Variance
Drosophila 603 4412 0.409 0.397
Tephritids 1255 132 0.258 0.062
P Value < 0.0001 < 0.0001 0.017 < 0.0001
  1. aIndel rate was calculated for each pair of species within a clade by dividing the number of indel sites by the number of nucleotides in the pairwise alignment, then further dividing by the branch length between the two species estimated using the dsx gene.
