Table 1 Correlation and partial correlation analysis of four putative determinants of protein distance.

From: Protein complex forming ability is favored over the features of interacting partners in determining the evolutionary rates of proteins in the yeast protein-protein interaction networks

  Variable Correlation (Spearman's ρ) Partial correlation (controlling expression level) Partial correlation (controlling degree) Partial correlation (controlling complex number)
