  1. N: number of animals; HE: expected heterozygosity based on the observed genotype frequencies; HO: observed heterozygosity; FIS: Wright’s inbreeding coefficient, significance was determined using the diversity package, after 1000 bootstraps the 95% bias corrected confidence interval was used to determine if the estimated FIS is significantly different from 0; PIC: polymorphic information content; N. A.: Not applicable
