The twenty fastest evolving genes in T. dalmanni. A) beta-Tubulin at 85D, B) CG17293, C) rhea, D) crooked legs, E) CG9520, F) ran, G) lesswright, H) CG4598, I) CG6480, J) TBPH, K) Small ribonucleoprotein particle protein B, L) CG31352, M) alien, N) expanded, O) Sec61alpha, P) CG31670, Q) CG5585, R) CNG channel-like, S) p115, T) CG7372. Genes were ranked based on the percentage of the total tree length comprised by the branch leading to T. dalmanni (Td). The other Dipteran taxa include A. gambiae (Ag) and three Drosophila species–D. melanogaster (Dm), D. pseudoobscura (Dp) and D. virilis (Dv). Only genes that had at least 150 amino acids of aligned sequence data are shown. All genes exhibited significantly increased rates of change compared to each of the three Drosophila species based on a relative rate test. The scale bar is equivalent to 0.02.
