  1. *Total number of possible transposable element hits among the 597 loci on the random-PCR array or among the 26,090 loci on the gene-oligo array. Using Fisher's exact test. All numbers represent only those loci for which the MspI cut site responsible for differential fractionation could be unambiguously determined.
