  1. The conservation of protein coding nucleotides was calculated and is expressed as percentage of conserved nucleotides. The translation initiation codon was omitted as it is not available for the processed pseudogene MSMB5. The bold numbers indicate highest similarity between a marmoset and a tamarin gene.
