Table 3 Percentage of genetic variation explained by six possible explanatory variables according to PLSR analysis of chicken diversity level in 1 Mb windows

From: Genome-wide analysis in chicken reveals that local levels of genetic diversity are mainly governed by the rate of recombination

gene density 3.02 2.91 2.93 3.31
GC content 3.12 (3.06) (3.13) 3.48
dS (0.69) (0.65) (0.86) (0.78)
