  • a Values are mean recombination rates ±SD calculated across contiguous 1-Mb bins.

  • b Probability of finding a larger or equal mean recombination rate when randomly drawing 16 bins from the distribution of all autosomal bins (100,000 iterations).

  • c Residuals are from multiple regression of recombination rates on GC, CpG, and poly(A)/poly(T) content.
