Comparing sequence and semantic similarity ("average" variants). A BLAST sequence analysis was carried out to calculate a sequence similarity score for each gene pair in the 100 k set for which sequence data was available. Of those gene pairs we considered only the 53,264 which obtained a score greater than zero. Intervals were taken along the x-axis ln [Bit Score] and (A) Resnik, (B) Lin and (C) Jiang scores for the corresponding gene pairs were averaged and plotted.
