Sequences of the 541 BACs (Table 1) were analyzed in aggregate by RepeatMasker. The percentages of bases represented by the indicated types of sequence repeats are reported for the total sequence, total gaps, captured gaps, and uncaptured gaps. Numbers in parenthesis are the one sigma error values.
