  1. Asian elephant Ema-10 is used as the reference sequence. Dots represent identity to the reference. Differences are shown as the base (both bases if the site was heterozygous). The A/: at -1 for Lcy-LO3505 indicates a site with a (heterozygous) single nucleotide deletion. Sites with character states unique to the woolly mammoth are in boldface. Variable sites are numbered from the putative start position of exon 1. Exon 2 was identical across species. Dash indicates sequences not generated for a sample.
