Additional file 1:

The list of co-modules obtained with the PPA run on data matched by orthologous genes. For every co-module we show number of genes, list of human and mouse organs assigned to the co-module, and the list of enriched GO categories for genes belonging to these co-modules.

Additional file 3:

The list of co-modules obtained with the PPA run on data matched by homologous organs. For every co-module we show the median dN/dS value for mouse and human genes separately. We also show a p-value of Wilcoxon signed rank test. In bold black wemarked modules with median dN/dS significantly lower than global median, and in bold red we marked co-modules with median dN/dS significantly higher than global median.
