Fig. S1 Proportion of successful PCRs (black circles) and PCRs with allelic dropout (white circles) according to initial template DNA amount in the PCR, for four primate taxa. (a) Mountain gorillas (b) western lowland gorillas (c) western chimpanzees and (d) black and white colobus. Data from 0 to 2500 pg/rxn DNA shown only.

Table S1 Primers used in study

Table S2 Number of PCR replicates necessary for various categories of initial DNA template amount, to ensure with high confidence (> 99% certainty) that homozygote genotypes are authentic and not the result of allelic dropout, for each primate taxa

Table S3 Nested and unnested primers do not differ in their PCR success or allelic dropout rates
