Figure 1

Intrachromosomal segmental duplications identified in the human genome. Three panels of results are displayed for each chromosome. Left, graphical views of the paralogous relationships between recent segmental duplications (graphics produced using GenomePixelizer [29, 30]; each line represents a duplicated module; coloring scheme, red = 99% to 100% sequence identity, purple = 96% to 98%, green = 93% to 95%, and blue = 90% to 92%). Middle panel: segmental duplications as detected by BLAST analysis (size of duplication in kb plotted against the length of chromosome in Mb). Right panel: ambSNPs density plot (number of ambSNPs plotted against the length of chromosome in Mb). All analyses were done using the June 2002 human genome sequence assembly.
