Distribution of telomeric associations observed between homologs and comparison to the theoretical distribution. The observed distributions of pp, qq, pqloop and pqcross associations between homologs for the 7 pairs of chromosomes are compared to the theoretical distribution (denoted chrT) calculated under the hypothesis of no preferential association type. The x-axis displays the chromosome pairs and the y-axis the percentage of each type of association observed. Statistical significance is assessed by a χ2 test: *p < 0.05, **p < 0.01, ***p < 0.001.
