b. Percentage of active genes in subtelomeric regions.

c. Number of pseudogenes without annotated functional paralog in the genome.

d. Number of pseudogenes with annotated functional paralog whose closest homolog is in the same genome (in) or in another genome (out).

*. Species for which all chromosomes are fully sequenced, including their telomeric repeats.
