  1. These motifs do not show the characteristic correlation with rate of substitution or the substantial decrease in substitution rate observed for the computationally identified motifs with the expected consensus. + indicates clusters taken from hierarchical clustering of yeast data from the Stanford Microarray database [42], ++ indicates clusters taken from hierarchical clustering of 300 genetic perturbations [43].
