Table 2 Correlation coefficients between recombination rate and pairwise nucleotide diversity and divergence from the rat at fourfold degenerate sites for protein coding genes
Correlation Coefficient
Non-CpG Prone SitesAll Sites
Nucleotide diversity (π)0.0900.20
Divergence from rat (drat)−0.0380.062
Corrected diversity (π/drat)0.100.18
  • Nonparametric Kendall correlations were calculated for non-CpG prone sites and for all sites, regardless of base context. All coefficients shown are highly significant (P < 10−10).
