  • a Values in the upper right are levels or amino acid similarity, and those in the lower left are levels or nucleic acid similarity. Values are calculated from data obtained from the EMBL nucleotide database by using the GAP program for the similarity of nucleic acids and by using the TREE program for the similarity of the deduced amino acids.
