Human SNP variability and mutation rate are higher in regions of high recombination.


Understanding the co-variation of nucleotide diversity and local recombination rates is important both for the mapping of disease-associated loci and in understanding the causes of sequence evolution. It is known that single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) around protein coding genes show higher diversity in regions of high recombination. Here, we find that… (More)
