Q. Q. Song, Chai, Z. X., Xin, J. W., Zhao, S. J., Ji, Q. M., Zhang, C. F., Ma, Z. J., and Zhong, J. C., Genetic diversity and classification of Tibetan yak populations based on the mtDNA COIII gene, vol. 14, pp. 1763-1770, 2015.

To determine the level of genetic diversity and phylogenetic relationships among Tibetan yak populations, the mitochondrial DNA cytochrome c oxidase subunit 3 (COIII) genes of 378 yak individuals from 16 populations were analyzed in this study. The results showed that the length of cytochrome c oxidase subunit 3 gene sequences was 781 bp, with nucleotide frequencies of 29.2, 29.4, 26.1, and 15.2% for T, C, A, and G, respectively.
