  • Divergence per site between human and chimpanzee (Kimura 1980) is given for transitions (Kts) and transversions (Ktv) at CpG sites and at non-CpG sites, all single nucleotide changes (Kn), insertion-deletions (Ki), and total changes including both point mutations and insertion-deletions (Kt). Mean values are weighted by the number of sites in each locus.
