140/40 refers to SNPs that are flanked on both sides by at least 40 nucleotides of genomic sequence.

20/20 refers to SNPs that are flanked on both sides by at least 20 nucleotides of genomic sequence.

2/40 refers to SNPs that have at least 2 nucleotides flanking sequence on one side and at least 40 nucleotides on the other.

2c50 refers to reference genome consisting of short read contigs of 50 bp or more

c50ca is extended genome assembly based on chicken alignment

c50caB is extended genome assembly based on chicken alignment and turkey BES.
