Genotype F 57.9 (11) 50.0 (12) 53.5 (23) 0.364
Genotype G 21.1 (4) 29.2 (7) 53.5 (23) 0.200

  1. Notes: Sample size represents the number of clones sequenced per treatment (Farmed vs Wild). A total of 4 farmed individuals and 5 wild individuals were sampled. The percentage represents the prevalence of each genotype within the farmed or wild cohort. Genotype G was the most prevalent genotype in white-tailed deer. Genotype F was found at higher proportion than genotype X in wild deer, but not in farmed deer. These differences were not significant
