Total mean proteome information content values for the six phylogenetic groups of the 76 species we used in this study. Total mean proteome information content (PIC; measured as total number of amino acids contained in the main isoforms for each organism) values for the six phylogenetic groups of the 76 species we used in this study. After excluding plants we carried out a one-way analysis of variance among the remaining five groups, assuming Gaussian distribution for proteome sizes and used Bonferroni's multiple comparison test to check the significance of pairwise differences among the five phylogenetic clades.
