Table 5 Estimated total repetitive DNA in T. castaneum genome assembly

From: Analysis of repetitive DNA distribution patterns in the Tribolium castaneum genome

Tools Percentage of genome masked Percentage of masked genome overlapping with RepeatScout
RepeatScout 25.7 N/A
TRF 4.9 1.5
TEpipe 5.8 5.2
Total 36.4 6.7
Total repetitive DNA in Tribolium genome 36.4 - 6.7 = 29.7
