(A) Distribution of the length of the 947,696 tandem repeats sequences. (B) Scatter plot of the number of maternal recombination sites and the number of tandem repeat sequences. When the tandem repeat sequences are grouped into 4 quartiles according to the length of repeat sequences, scatter plots for each quartile are shown in (C) Q1, 1-4 base pairs (bp), (D) Q2, 5-15 bp, (E) Q3, 16-24 bp, and (F) Q4, larger than 25 bp, respectively. Regression lines are marked in red, and the Pearson correlation coefficients between number of maternal recombination events and the number of tandem repeat sequences are indicated.
