Table 2 Groups of genes from 87 human datasets were categorized according to those that exceeded progressively large CV cutoff values. The percentage of genes in each group that are X-linked is shown in the table, whereas the percentage that was autosomal is 100 minus the number shown. Data for mice is not shown because not many genes showed higher CV values
