Received on October 12, 2003; accepted on February 3, 2004
Motivation: Substantial regional variations of substitutional
processes have recently been reported from human/mouse
comparisons. However, several features including the C + G
dependence and the CpG-based transition effect remain
Results: Utilizing the vast amount of transposable elements
in the human genome, we performed detailed analysis of the
substitutional and insertion/deletion patterns along the human
lineage in a regional and time-resolved fashion. We observed
a drastic increase in the CpG-based transition frequency at
