Repair-Mediated Duplication by Capture of Proximal Chromosomal DNA Has Shaped Vertebrate Genome Evolution

Figure 5

Rate and timing of RD formation.

For each branch, the number of RDs created (n), the rate of repair-mediated duplication (per myr), and the average divergence of acceptor and donor pairs (%) during the time period are shown. The timing of RD formation for the human lineage (indicated by the red branches) is shown above the time scale by the red vertical bars. Each individual bar shows the relative proportion of RDs falling within the same, non-overlapping 5-myr bin.
