Percentage of bp covered by LTR retrotransposon superfamilies. Percentage of bp covered by LTR retrotransposon superfamilies in characterized genomes. Plant species are organized according to phylogenetic relationships. The figures for each genome correspond to Brachypodium distachyon [62], Oryza sativa [63], Zea mays [11], Sorghum bicolor [64], Vitis vinifera [68], Carica papaya [65], Arabidopsis thaliana [10]- [LTR element coverage obtained from 61], Fragaria vesca [66], Malus domestica [61], Glycine max [67], Phaseolus vulgaris (data obtained from phytozome - http://www.phytozome.net/ webcite), Populus trichocarpa [60] - [LTR element coverage obtained from 61], Linum usitatissimum (flax - this study), Ricinus communis [59]. The transposable elements from the genomes of Theobroma cacao [69] and Cucumis sativus [70] have more Copia than Gypsy elements but could not be included in the figure since their actual coverage on the genome was not specified.
