Figure 3

Dendrogram of loci in selected catarrhines. Recently copying families plus HK2 in the human and chimpanzee genomes are shown in red. Families such as BaEV show bursts of copying restricted to near the tree tip. For clarity, we excluded loci that had integrated before the origin of the catarrhines. The asterisk in the orangutan shows a clade of loci detected only in unassembled parts of the X chromosome and chromosome 1. These possibly represent loci within repeat regions that have been copied by the host, or assembly errors.
