  1. Upper-right off-diagonal: pair-wise Pearson's correlation coefficients between human-macaque, mouse-rat and dog-cow orthologous substitution rates estimated from non-CpG and all sites in ancestral repeats orthologous to mouse, rat, dog and cow for each of 2,270 windows of size 1 Mb. Lower-left off diagonal: p-values expressing significance of the correlation coefficients.
