  1. We list the total number n of Hox and Evx genes in the dataset; the number Δ of Hox and Evx gene orthology assignments (see Figure 4 that are well-supported (query coverage > 30%) by SynBlast but that are missing in the Compara annotation; the number β of well-supported assignments with incorrect annotations in Compara (paralog). We furthermore list the number M of the K Hox clusters in the dataset which contain apparently missing and/or erroneous Compara annotations. All data refer to Ensembl release 42 (Dec 2006).
