  1. aThe divergence represents average pairwise k-distance between individual copies and the consensus. Numbers of individual sequences used for the k-distance calculation are indicated in parentheses.
  2. bMariner1_BT families from other Bos indicus, Bos grunniens, Bubalus bubalis are not shown.
