Table 4 Number of human and chimpanzee INDELs associated with noninterspersed sequences

From: Characterization and potential functional significance of human-chimpanzee large INDEL variation

  Human gaps Chimpanzee gaps    
Noninterspersed sequence subclass CIs HDs CIs + HDs HIs CDs HIs + CDs Total insertions (CIs + HIs) Total deletions (CDs + HDs) Total INDELs (CIs + HIs + CDs + HDs)
TRs 720 546 1,266 814 520 1,334 1,534 1,066 2,600
USs 1,156 1,767 2,923 1,145 1,267 2,412 2,301 3,034 5,335
Total 1,876 2,313 4,189 1,959 1,787 3,746 3,835 4,100 7,935
  1. CD = chimpanzee deletion; CI = chimpanzee insertion; HD = human deletion; HI = human insertion; INDEL = insertion and deletion; TR = tandem repeat; US = unique sequence. Using Rhesus macaque as an out-group, we characterized INDEL variation as CDs, CIs, HDs or HIs.
