Method Using the upper 10% fastest evolving genes in terms of dN (see Methods) in both the mammalian (n = 730) and nematode (n = 753) lineages, researchers first used GeneMerge (Castillo-Davis and Hartl 2003a) to identify the annotated functions of fast evolving genes and to determine if any particular functional categories were statistically overrepresented.
