Species-specific description: Sørensen et al. (2023) "used high-coverage whole-genome sequences from 225 wild baboons ... to investigate population genomics and interspecies gene flow. ... We also identified several candidate genes that may contribute to species-specific phenotypes. ... SNV_2 [13:49896439:G:C] ... has a 1.0 AF in both hamadryas and Guinea baboons and is absent from other species. This is a missense variant in neurexin 1 (NRXN1), which is associated with the GO term “social behavior.” ... Guinea and hamadryas baboons differ from others in the genus in exhibiting a multilevel male-philopatric social organization with substantial male-male tolerance [Swedell et al., 2011; Fischer et al., 2019]."
