Comparison of the repeat copy numbers determined experimentally to the estimates based on their frequency in 454 reads. The comparison was performed for a set of previously characterized repetitive elements [20–24] including fragments of retrotransposon coding regions (gag-pol) and long terminal repeats (LTR), tandem repeats (TR), MITEs, and dispersed repeats of unknown origin (other). Detailed description of the repeats and their copy number estimates are available as Additional file 1. Dashed lines mark the area where the two estimates differ less than twofold.
