Additional file 1: Table S1:

Repeat elements found in three P. triticina BAC clones. BAC sequences were compared to RePBASE, a database containing characterized repeat elements from P. triticina (Pt), P. graminis tritici (Pgt), and P. striiformis tritici (Pst). Repeats are listed by position in the respective Pt BAC clone, DNA strand, and the species specific element. Table S2. Description of matching repeats, type of element and which rust fungus they are from.
