Figure 4

The number of segmental duplications within 1 Mb of potentially fragile regions in human relative to random locations in the genome (Control-1) and blocks in human genome that are syntenic in at least one another species and disrupted in at least one another species and excluding the fragile regions (Control-2). There are more segmental duplications near the fragile regions relative to Control-1 (Wilcoxon rank sum p-value = 0.0054) as well as relative to Control-2 (p-value = 0.00015).
