Additional File 1:

Plot of experiment-wide statistics for allele frequency, average heterozygosity and FST. Two plots one above the other, the upper plot shows the average allele frequency plotted against the average heterozygosity for each SNP, the lower plot shows average heterozygosity plotted against FST for each SNP.

SNP with extreme FST values in both the Bovine HapMap and Australian data sets. A table consisting of six columns listing the dbSNP identifier, the chromosome, the position in bp in the Btau 4.0 assembly, the per locus FST in the Australian and then the Bovine HapMap data, and the number of 1 Mb blocks per chromosome with loci with high or low FST.
