 
Summary: The zero CP case: estimating the number
of totally identical paralogs (TIPS)
Two sets of data were modeled. The first data set is the number of NIPcontigs containing a given number of
coincident polymorphisms, from one to twenty four. The available data are given in Figure 1. The second set of
data are the number of NIPS with a given number of CPs per 1012 bases. This rather odd length is the one that
causes the two data sets to have the same number of reporting categories so that the fitted models are most easily
compared. These CP density data were derived by taking the original data and dividing the number of CPs in a
given sequence by the length of the sequences CPcompetent reigon.
