Fig. 4

Overlapping amount and genome length are not associated with virion shape. a Showing the same analysis as in Fig. 2a with a different color scheme that highlights the partition between icosahedral and non-icosahedral viruses. Both classes are distributed all over the space. b A quantitative summary of the 90 families in the scatter plot (37 icosahedral and 53 non-icosahedral), showing the overall statistics of the two viral classes in family resolution. The two classes show similar values, in terms of both average and standard deviation
