Species-specific description: Sørensen et al. (2023) "used high-coverage whole-genome sequences from 225 wild baboons ... to investigate population genomics and inter species gene flow. ... We also identified several candidate genes that may contribute to species-specific phenotypes. ... SNV_1 [20:27347531:G:T] ..., a missense variant in serine protease 8 (PRSS8), has a 0.96 allele frequency (AF) in hamadryas baboons and a 0.02 AF in the geographically adjacent Gog olive baboons (absent in other species)." The authors propose that this variant may be an adaptation to arid environment.
