  • Each inferred Pecoran ancestral chromosome is shown, along with the homologous chromosomes in sheep, cattle, deer, and human. The major chromosomal rearrangements in the lineages leading to bovids (cattle and sheep), sheep, and deer are indicated.

  • a Two markers indicate that a small region of LG33 is syntenic with Bta22 and Hsa2. This translocation in the deer lineage is considered tentative.
