Data Deposition

The following information was supplied regarding data availability:

Genome data in which coding sequences for giraffe and okapi vision genes were extracted is publicly accessible in the Short Read Archive under project number SRP071593 (BioProject PRJNA313910). Accession numbers for the sequences from other species used in this study is presented as part of the manuscript or as supplemental files.
