Summary of transposon exaptation frequency in LSG and non-LSG CDS. a) The frequency of exaptation of each TE super-family for all genes; split into LSG and non-LSGs. b) Close up view of a) where there is evidence of TE exaptation in LSGs and non-LSGs. c) The frequency of each TE super-family exapted in those genes containing exapted TE DNA, split into LSG and non-LSGs. Note, some genes have exapted DNA from several super-families, each case is reported therefore the total percentage is marginally over 100% to reflect this.
