  1. An overview of the populations surveyed. Population label refers to the names of the same population in other studies: the wild chicken population, Frisian Fowl, and Owl Bearded were part of the AvianDiv project [18]. The E2, E5 and E3 lines have been previously studied by Aerts et al. (2007). Indicated are the number of specimens used (N indiv), observed heterozygosity per chromosome (Hobs), and overall ancestral allele frequencies (anc. Freq.).
