  1. The first three filters, starting with the leftmost column were sequentially applied, resulting in the “genome-wide” set on which all additional analyses are based for both the X-chromosome (X) and the autosomes (A). Subsequent filters are all subsets of this set. Indicated percentages are out of the previous filtering step, i.e. previous column and the third column for all following columns.
