  1. The number of (a) 7-mers and (b) 8-mers shared between the 400 highest scoring 7-mers and 8-mers, respectively, in each pair of phylogenetic groups considered. Y, yeasts; W, worms; F, flies; M, mammals. p-values were calculated using the hypergeometric distribution, as described in Materials and Methods.
