Chromosomal coverage by homozygous segments as a function of segment size. For each chromosome, the cumulative sum of segment length (sorted in decreasing or increasing order) was calculated for each individual, values interpolated for a set of length values between 0 and 1,000 kb, and the median value curve calculated across each sample population. (a) Cumulative total length (sorted by increasing segment size) as the proportion of mappable chromosomal length. (b) Cumulative total length (sorted by decreasing segment size) as the proportion of mappable chromosomal length. (c) Total segment length ≥MISLgw versus each chromosome's total mappable length (r shown excludes chromosome X).
