Table 1

Number of one-to-one orthologous gene pairs which are localized either in overlapping or non-overlapping manner relative to each other between the A. aegypti and A. gambiae genomes
Localization pattern Number of gene pairs
E/H in both A. aegypti and A. gambiae 75
P/O in both A. aegypti and A. gambiae 54
E/H in A. aegypti but P/O in A. gambiae 3
P/O in A. aegypti but E/H in A. gambiae 7
E/H in A. aegypti but non-overlapping in A. gambiae 43
P/O in A. aegypti but non-overlapping in A. gambiae 140
Non-overlapping in A. aegypti but E/H in A. gambiae 103
Non-overlapping in A. aegypti but P/O in A. gambiae 74

The overlapping gene pairs where one gene is embedded in another are represented as E/H pairs. The gene pairs which are localized in partially overlapping manner with each other are represented as P/O gene pairs.
