* The weights in the parentheses are in the order for the datasets: MuAc, MuPref, HuAlc, HuAddChip, HuLink, Ce, Dr, Cross, respective. The description of these datasets is provided in Figure 1.

** Cross denotes the bonus score for genes who had cross-species hits except for genes from human linkage regions (see section Materials and methods).
