  1. The detailed distributions are shown in Additional data file 4. Human recombination rate data measured with a 1 Mb window were based on the deCODE genetic map and downloaded from the UCSC Genome Browser [30]. Recombination rate data measured with 5 Mb and 10 Mb windows were prepared by Jensen-Seaman et al. [31] and downloaded from the associated supplementary material website.
