Evolutionary rates dN and dS. (A) The nonsynonymous rate, dN, correlates strongly with RSA under both the mutational-opportunity definition and the physical-sites definition. (B) The synonymous rate, dS, shows a moderate negative correlation with RSA under the mutational-opportunity definition and no slope under the physical-sites definition. The fitted model had linear ω, linear t, and per-bin κ.
