  1. The only species pairs with a significant Pearson correlation (<0.001) are those among C. dubliniensis, C. albicans, and C. tropicalis (shown in bold). This indicates that virtually all fungal genomes have uniform mutation rates. Average divergence is the fraction of all aligned 4-fold sites which differ between the two species. Species pairs in italics and marked with a * have at least 10% fewer substitutions than would be expected at mutational saturation.
