Genetic diversity in Felidae species. a Genetic distances and nucleotide diversities. Sequences of Felidae, Hominidae, and Bovidae were mapped to cat, human, and cow references, respectively. The genetic distances were calculated by dividing the number of homozygous SNVs to the reference genome by corresponding species genome size (bp) and divergence time (MYA). Nucleotide diversities were calculated by dividing the number of heterozygous SNVs by the genome size. The divergence times were from TimeTree database. b Estimated felids population sizes. Generation times of the leopard cat and big cats are three and five years, respectively. μ is mutation rate (per site, per year)
