Title and description of data: Alignment of the 18S rRNA gene copies retrieved from theOreochromis niloticusgenome at the BouillaBase database (http://www.bouillabase.org webcite). The nucleotides are identified by different colors, and the black blocks under the alignment indicate the consensus sequence.

Title and description of data: Identified transposable elements (TEs) in the flanking regions (FRs) of 5S rRNA gene copies retrieved from theO. niloticusgenome and their similarity (%) level to sequences deposited in Repbase. d1, d2…, u1, u2… indicate the different copies detected. The position of the TE is indicated by “d” - downstream of the gene or “u” - upstream of the gene. R indicates reverse copies of the TE.
