Large metazoan neurogenome. Total base pair coverage of neurogenetic vs non-neurogenetic genes across a dozen metazoans. a Mean transcript sequence length, (b) Mean coding DNA sequence length, CDS, (c) Mean number of exons per gene. Analyses based on human gene ontology annotations. Asterisks next to individual species comparisons indicate significant differences between neural and non-neural gene sets using a Wilcoxon rank sum test (*P < 0.05, ** P < 0.01)
