  1. Pop. ID refers to the experimental population number. Columns 2, 3 and 4 display the chromosomal location of the CNV and the chromosomal coordinates based on WormBase version WS243. Column 5 provides estimates of the span (bp) of the deletion. Columns 6–11 represent the number of protein-coding genes, tRNAs/rRNAs, piRNAs, ncRNAs, pseudogenes and transposases, respectively, that are encompassed by the deletion event. Column 12 represents the copy-number of the deleted region in the population following 180–212 generations of population expansion based on oaCGH results. Chromosomal coordinates of deletion are predicted based on oaCGH probes in all cases except for events marked by a * wherein exact deletion breakpoints were determined via direct sequencing
