Table S1. Statistics for nested model comparisons. Model selection statistics for the effects of GRN features on the number of cryptic genetic variations in a population. Among all possible combinations, only the models for which the AIC values differed from that of the null model by ≥2 are shown. Note that all these models include the weighted size of the GRN (Eweighted) as an explanatory variable.

Table S2. The effects of each parameter on the evolution of GRNs. The effects of population size (N), mutation rate (μ), number of genes (Vgenome), number of cis-elements (L), positive edge bias (A), strength of selection (S), and number of environments (H) on network properties are shown. The α levels were adjusted to control for multiple comparisons using the false discovery rate (FDR) procedure.
