Correlation between the number of sex-averaged recombination sites and SINE/MIR (A, B) or LINE/L1 (C, D) repetitive sequences elements. The distribution of the number of sex-averaged recombination sites (blue) and repetitive sequences elements (green) on chromosome 1 was calculated using a window width set to 1 Mb (A, C). The scatter plot shows the number of sex-averaged recombination sites and repetitive sequences on chromosome 1 (B, D). Regression lines are marked in red. The chromosomal regions without any SNP site in the Affymetrix Genome-Wide Human SNP 6.0 arrays are marked as gray blocks.
