Function similarity (all ontologies combined) of corresponding 11 orthologs among human, mouse, and an outgroup.
The outgroups are (A
) D. melanogaster
) S. cervisiae
, and (C
) E. coli
. Strikingly, function is maintained among 1
1 orthologs over all evolutionary ranges considered here. Histograms represent sample density partitioned for each homology type, and error bars represent the 95% confidence interval around the mean.
