  1. N is the number of chromosomes; L is the averaged sequence length; π and θw are two standard diversity indices. aThe loci were aligned to the human chromosomes 7, 8, 20, 22 and X. bMtgenome sequences excluding the control regions from the 49 gibbon individuals were used for the diversity index calculation; cCytochrome b gene sequences from 85 gibbons were used for the diversity index calculation; dAutosomal sequences of 25 regions from nine bonobo and 30 chimpanzee individuals were used for the diversity index calculation.
