CNV basics, human, African American, McElroy 2009

McElroy 2009 BMC Genetics

3.5 CNV per individual in African Americans
4.8 CNV per individual in white (a bit inflated due to the reference)
when the reference is a pool of 50 randomly chosen AA women were used as references.

Except two CNV (one on chr17 and one on chr15), all other CNVs vary within 10% between African American and Caucasians.
