  1. 1Brahman are indicine cattle developed in the US as a composite of Nelore, Gir, Guzerat and Indu Brazil cattle originating in India but imported primarily from Brazil. The remaining breeds are taurine.
  2. 2Number of contiguous loci spanning at least 200 kb and with a minor allele frequency ≤ 0.01 required to declare a selective sweep region in each breed.
