Linear regression of the density of genes in rice chromosome 1 (roughly estimated by the matches of OsGI sequences to this chromosome: Osgi_vs_chr1) on the density of gSSRs (≥ 12 bp) in rice chr1. Pearson correlation is 0.45. Regression coefficients are highly significant (P-value = 1.2E-05). Density is expressed in counts per 500 kbp.
