  1. Chicken and zebrafish are included for outgroup comparison. For a complete list of the 25 primate species analyzed by Zoo-FISH, see [61]. CSUs, conserved segments with unknown gene order; CSOs, conserved segments with known gene order; *predicted using methods of Nadeau and Taylor [67].CSUs and CSOs are based on comparison to human chromosomes.
