Extended Data Figure 1

The chimpanzee was used as outgroup to determine the ancestral state, which is shared with all individuals in the tree except those belonging to the labelled branch. Provided are the number of diagnostic sites available for this analysis (top left panel) as well as the number of sequences supporting the derived state, their percentage (in brackets) and the total number of observations. Numbers above the branch include all sequences whereas bold numbers below the branch are limited to sequences showing evidence of cytosine deamination. Published data from library A2021 of femur XIII were included in this analysis for comparison.
