Distribution of 1- to 10-bp indels in the sorghum genome. (a) Number of indels of different length in the coding sequence (CDS) regions and the whole genome. (b) Number of genes that contain indels of different lengths. The figure reveals that 3-bp indels in CDS regions and genes that contain 3-bp indels are of the largest quantity. This implies that 3-bp indels cause the least negative effects on sorghum survival.
