Comment on dN/dS

Posted by lwycau on 18 Jan 2010 at 01:26 GMT

I am skeptical of the dS/dN analysis, and believe the higher %dS values is an artifact of the method you used to estimate substitution rates (often exceeding 1), which means that the actual estimate will be sensitive to the mutation model.

No competing interests declared.
