Supplementary Table 1. Marker information. Locus name refers to either the BAC-end locus or the orthologos mouse gene name. SNP names were asssigned similarly where names beginning in "FI" correspond to vole BAC-end loci names and names beginning in "NM" correspond to the accession number of the orthologos mouse gene.

Supplementary Table 2. Integration of the prairie vole cytogenetic and linkage maps. Markers that did not have an orthologus position in the mouse genome were omitted from this table. Concordant markers were those in which the cytogenetic and genetic linkage maps agreed with respect to blocks of prairie vole-mouse synteny.
