Additional file 2:

Global FST values (estimated over 9 samples/populations of Atlantic salmon) for 300 polymorphic SNP markers. Each linkage group is represented by a single figure, with associated SNPs and their global FST values plotted on them. Unmapped SNPs are ranked by global FST and placed in the bottom figure.
