Percent repeat heterozygosity for each motif size in Daphnia pulex. The X-axis is the repeat number found in the assembly. The Y-axis shows the percent of loci at that motif size that are heterozygous. Motif sizes best fit 1-3 an exponential curve while motif sizes 4 and 5 best fit a linear pattern. (Motifs 1-5 respectively: r2 = 0.975, p < 1e-7; r2 = 0.990, p < 1e-8; r2 = 0.995, p < 1e-6; r2 = 0.824, p < .01; r2 = 0.999, p < .01).
