From: 1000 human genomes carry widespread signatures of GC biased gene conversion

Fig. 3

Distribution of local GC content in regions surrounding AT - > GC vs GC - > AT conversion events. Local GC content was calculated within 100 bp window by considering 50 nucleotides before and after each putative AT - > GC or GC - > AT conversion site

The red line shows the distribution of local GC content around 22,646 AT - > GC conversion events while the blue line presents the local GC content around the same number of GC - > AT cases. The yellow line (control) represents local GC content around same number of sites selected randomly, independent of gene conversion events.
