Distribution of expected autozygous segment lengths since common ancestor. The probability density of autozygosity lengths from a common ancestor follows an exponential distribution that depends on the number of generations since the common ancestor. We chose to examine autozygous segments that originate from a common ancestor within the past 20 generations (in green) and within the last 50 generations (in blue). The dashed lines indicate the minimum length threshold that would capture 80% of these segments, with the grey area under the curve being the proportion of autozygous segments being captured above this threshold.
