A. Snapshot of an alignment of 284 crasiRNAs and surrounding sequence from the tammar genome. The blue indicates conservation (white = 0%<dark blue= 100% identity) across all alignments. Shown at the bottom are the conserved nucleotides and boxes indicate the pattern of conservation. Listed from top are crasi-tam-001 through −017. The vertical red line bisects the crasiRNA. B. Distribution of statistical significance for the palindrome motif identified in crasiRNAs and miRNA pools.
