Fixed insertions 66,333 13,589 8022 9406 2867 100,217
Fixed rDI 1.30 1.97 1.845 1.29 1.635 1.449
Polymorphic deletions 344,533 121,548 82,114 84,393 31,607 664,195
Polymorphic insertions 226,712 38,545 21,147 27,180 8986 322,570
Polymorphic rDI 1.519 3.15 3.88 3.10 3.52 2.06
  1. Ratio of deletions to insertions (rDI) is given for polymorphic and fixed indels of different lengths on the human lineage. Fisher’s exact tests were applied to the counts of fixed and polymorphic insertions and deletions in each column and yielded p-values < 2.2e-16 in all comparisons
