Fig. 2

Disproportionately large neurogenetic targets in humans and flies. Total genomic coverage for the ontological class “neurogenetic” in (a–e) Homo sapiens and (f–j) Drosophila melanogaster. Average per gene size of coding region, CDS (b, g), untranslated regions, UTRs (c, h), number of microRNA targets, miRNA (d, i), and the number of transcription factor binding sites, TFBS (e, j). Asterisks above each comparison indicate significant differences between neural and non-neural gene sets using a Wilcoxon rank sum test (*P < 0.05, **P < 0.01)
