Genomic regions of high-frequency extended homozygosity possess low recombination rates. Recombination rate was calculated for the central half-width of each autosomal peak in the merged peak dataset using population-specific genetic maps based on the 1000G pilot data. (a) Recombination rate versus extAUC peak height. (b,c) Boxplot summaries for non-outlier and outlier peaks for each sample population for (b) recombination rate, and (c) recombination rate transformed into cumulative probabilities and adjusting for peak width.
