Table 4 Correlation of CvP-bias differences with experimentally determined Tm value differences for various orthologous protein pairs

From: Deep transcriptome-sequencing and proteome analysis of the hydrothermal vent annelid Alvinella pompejana identifies the CvP-bias as a robust measure of eukaryotic thermostability
