Intron densities in selected extant eukaryotic genomes and inferred intron densities in ancestral genomes. The data are from Carmel et al. (2007). Intron density is the number of introns per kilobase of protein-coding DNA. Color code: blue, extant eukaryotic genomes; gray, ancestral forms; and red, LECA. For the ancestral forms, the low bound of intron density is indicated. Species names: Anoga, Anopheles gambiae; Arath, Arabidopsis thaliana; Aspfu, Aspergillus fumigates; Caeel, Caenorhabditis elegans; Cioin, Ciona intestinalis; Cryne, Cryptococcus neoformis; Danre, Danio rerio; Dicdi, Dictyostelium discoideum; Drome, Drosophila melanogaster; Homsa, Homo sapiens; Neucr, Neurospora crassa; Plafa, Plasmodium falciparum; Schpo, Schizosaccharomyces pombae; Strpu, Strongylocentrotus purpuratum; and Thepa, Theileria parva.
