Distribution of small RNAs aligning to retroposon elements. (A) ingi is a 5.25 kb element composed of an ingi-specific 4.75 kb fragment flanked by two separate halves of the RIME element family [28,29]. This element contains a single ORF (ORF1) flanked by two RIME elements. 2,326,864 reads in the wild-type library aligned to this element with 1,1321,119 reads from the sense and 1,194,745 reads from the antisense strand. Note that sense and antisense small RNA reads are shown separately. (B) The SLACS element is 6.8 kb long with two predicted ORFs. Sense (640,935 reads) and antisense (1,152,384 reads) small RNA reads are shown separately.
