Table 6 Summary of the chimpanzee and human population data at Patr and HLA genes, respectively

From: Similar patterns of genetic diversity and linkage disequilibrium in Western chimpanzees (Pan troglodytes verus) and humans indicate highly conserved mechanisms of MHC molecular evolution

  1. N: sample size (in number of individuals); k: number of populations per geographic region; \( \overline{N} \): mean sample size (in number of individuals); s.d.: standard deviation. The order of loci corresponds to their position on the chromosome from centromere (left) to telomere (right)
  2. adoes not include Texascb (see Text)
  3. bPopulations were allocated to one of six geographic regions, and we considered an additional category Other for known admixed populations
