Measures for complete gene sequences (exons and introns). π = nucleotide diversity within accessions of A. thaliana; K = nucleotide divergence between A. thaliana and A. lyrata; π/K = ratio of diversity and divergence. Number of fixed differences between A. thaliana and A. lyrata, as well as number of polymorphic sites among A. thaliana accessions, both subdivided into total, synonymous (syn), and nonsynonymous (nonsyn) substitutions.
