a, Distribution of divergence of the autosomes (blue), the X chromosome (red) and the Y chromosome (green). b, Distribution of variation by chromosome, shown as a box plot. The edges of the box correspond to quartiles; the notches to the standard error of the median; and the vertical bars to the range. The X and Y chromosomes are clear outliers, but there is also high local variation within each of the autosomes.
