Table 3 Marker panel genotyping results. Each assay contains between 22 and 26 usable markers, and 15 to 24 appear to be fully diagnostic – viz., we have not observed any presence of minor alleles in the two subspecies or populations. Except for the dwarf subspecies, where the number of specimens is small, a 95% confidence upper bound for the minor allele frequency of an apparently fully diagnostic marker is between 3 and 4%
