Indel-conserved segments

Evolutionary conserved segments in the human genome, determined by a comparative analysis with the mouse and dog genomes. See the paper for full details. These segments were obtained at a 10% false discovery rate (FDR), weighted by segment length.

In addition to the 10% FDR, which refers to the entire list, a p-value was computed for each segment. This p-value refers to the false-positive proportion of segments (with a similar p-value) among those identified. (Note that this is different from a standard p-value which refers to the false-positive probability, and gives the proportion of falsely identified segments relative to the genome.)

All data can be viewed in the UCSC and Ensembl genome browsers. In the UCSC browser, light or dark blue colors are used, according to whether segments fall within the full 10% FDR set, or within a smaller subset that has an overall FDR of 1%.
