Table 1 Correlations between standard deviation in GC and median GC and recombination

From: Evidence for GC-biased gene conversion as a driver of between-lineage differences in avian base composition

GC i rho = 0.1663 P = 0.0121 rho = 0.3636 P = 1.6e-08
  1. Intronic GC was calculated only for windows with a minimum of 10 introns present to avoid noise owing to low numbers of sites.
