  1. pAA,pNT,pS, and pN, represent average number of amino acid, nucleotide, synonymous and non-synonymous nucleotide differences per site when calculated using the entire protein/nucleotide coding sequence along with the Z-test of selection. SE indicates standard error based on 1000 bootstrap replicates.
  2. aaverage transition/transversion ratio.
  3. bH1: p N <p S and Ho: p N = p S .
  4. *** P< 0.001.
