  1. Tajima’s relative rate test was carried out by randomly comparing three phylogenetically distant sequences of CBL proteins. The test was replicated for three times with one degree of freedom. In all the four cases, statistical result was found to be significant. The P-value less than 0.05 is often used to reject the null hypothesis of equal rates between lineages. Each analysis involved 3 amino acid sequences. All positions containing gaps and missing data were eliminated
