Cumulative distributions of NumtS flanking regions repetitive elements. The cumulative distribution of repetitive elements (RE) and segmental duplications (SegDups) content in the 1000 bp 5' and 3' flanking regions of NumtS is reported as calculated on: a) the whole collection of NumtS; b) the PCR-validated NumtS; c) the NumtS not validated by PCR. The graph shows that 60% of the PCR-validated NumtS contained less than 41% RE and SegDups in their flanking regions, while this percentage increased (72%) when considering NumtS not validated by PCR.
