  1. Contributions of 13 geographical breed groups to the overall genetic diversity of worldwide cattle according to: marker estimated kinships (MEK), average coancestries (fm), weighted log-linear model (WLM), weighted log-linear mixed model (WLMM), Weitzman formula (PCWeitz), proportional variation of the expected heterozygosity (PCHe), aggregate diversity (PCFst), and the Piyasatian and Kinghorn formula (PC5:1); values for the five breed groups with the highest contributions are shown in bold; breeds in each group are defined in Table 1;1aggregate diversity was calculated as: PCFst = PC Weitz *0.048+PCHe*0.952.
