SNPs identified through sequencing in 10 genomic regions of M. fascicularis and M. mulatto. All SNPs identified in 10 genomic regions by sequencing of 20 M. fascicularis and 20 M. mulatta are shown at the top. Loci highlighted in green showed no variant allele in that population; yellow highlight indicates a SNP was detected, and red indicates that only the minor allele of the SNP variant was detected in the population.
