  1. *RepeatMasker was used to determine the percent of the genome occupied by each repeat class. High repetitive A, 31 repeat sequences that each masked >0.1% of the genome. Middle repetitive, 304 repeat sequences that each masked >0.01% and <0.1% of the genome. §Low repetitive, 3,237 repeat sequences that each masked <0.01% of the genome. High repetitive B, repeat sequences that each masked >0.1% of the genome, but show a different distribution pattern to the HighA repeat sequences. ¥360 bp satellite was removed from the HighA class for separate analysis. #Transposable elements were removed from the HighA, Mid, and Low repetitive classes for separate analysis.
