We have forgotten to thank our collaborators who provided the Creole samples. The Acknowledgements section should read:


We thank Mohamad Hifzan Rosali (MARDI, Malaysia), Ernie Muneerah Mohd Adhan (NIVB, Malaysia), Ilias Kyriazakis (UTH, Greece), George.C. Fthenakis (UTH, Greece) and Pierre Martin (Capgenes, France) for collecting samples. For the sampling of the Creole goat population, we acknowledge Nathalie Mandonnet, Michel Naves and Rémy Arquet (INRA, Guadeloupe), Régis Alexandre (Chambre d'Agriculture de Guadeloupe), Marylène Madassamy (CABRICOOP) and breeders, as well as the Région Guadeloupe for its financial support. We thank Marcel Amills (UAB, Spain) and Alessio Valentini (Unitus, Italy) for their help in collecting published SNPs. We are grateful to Curt Van Tassell (ARS, USDA, USA), for testing his spacing software on our data and Rabiatul Adawiah Zainal Abidin, (MARDI, Malaysia) for bioinformatics discussions. We acknowledge Thomas Faraut (INRA, France) for helpful discussions. Expression data from ‘‘GENIDOV” (coordinated by Eric Pailhoux) and ‘‘CHEST-454” (coordinated by Patrice Martin) programmes were used in this publication. We thank Karine Viaud (Illumina Incorporated, USA), for her excellent work on the creation of the beadpool.

We thank Dr. Umi Kalsom Abu Bakar, Project Director and financial support from CMDV (MARDI) and Malaysian Biotechnology Corporation.
