Ternplot showing "similarity' between Folsomia candida and Apis mellifera, Daphnia magna and Caenorhabditis elegans , respectively. Each dot represents one ribosomal protein. The four dots that are visible on the three edges represent five genes that were unavailable for one of the three species. Two dots/genes overlap. RpS30 was not mapped on this graph, as analysis of our RpS30 alignment resulted in a Kimura protein distance that was larger than one: Kimura protein distance C. elegans and F. candida = 1.14.
