  • The number of interstitial telomeric repeat annotations (each annotation including one or more consecutive hexamer units TGTGGG or TGAGGG) was counted in three different window sizes (500, 1000, and 2000 bp) around annotated TEs (including full-length and partial copies); CDS of putatively foreign genes (AI > 0); host genes with small RNA coverage; and host genes without small RNA coverage. SD, standard deviation.
