Evidence for negative selection among various annotation classes. Comparison of derived allele frequency for all classes against both ancestral repeats and the whole genome is shown for all three Perlegen populations. Yellow shaded classes are statistically significant when we apply an FDR correction with α = 0.05. Only resequenced Perlegen SNP markers are included in this analysis to minimize ascertainment bias. The file can be viewed with Microsoft Excel.
