The number of sequences and the normalized CQs of the positive control data
Data set Autosomal sequences Normalized median CQ X sequences Normalized median CQ Y sequences Normalized median CQ
H. sapiens 581,737 1.00 39,844 1.85 7,934 0.00
D. melanogaster 48,870 1.00 18,011 1.96 139 0.025

The number of sequences and the normalized median chromosome quotients (CQs) of the positive control data sets illustrate that autosomal sequences have chromosome quotients distributed around one, X sequences have chromosome quotients distributed around two, and Y sequences have chromosome quotients near zero. The distributions of chromosome quotients from different chromosomes are shown in Figure‚ÄČ1.
