Figure 5

Dependence of evolutionary rate in nematodes on the number of protein interactions and CAI. The estimated evolutionary rate decreases with increasing number of interaction partners (τ ≈ -0.03) and the expression level (τ ≈ -0.30). We have again transformed the x-axis in the scatterplot of rate vs. connectivity which leads to the concave shape of the regression line (red).
