Schematic evolution of the 379 fruit fly genes in a simplified tree of life. The number of orthologs of the 379 fly genes was obtained for various species using Ensembl metazoa gene and Ensembl gene databases (release 88), as described in Material and Methods. The percentage of conservation was compared to the entire gene repertoire using the Chi-square test. * indicates a significant difference (p < 0.0001)
