Homology of sequences containing microsattelites. Transposon group contains sequences similar to transposable elements (both transposons or retrotransposons). RGC group contains sequences similar to resistance gene candidates or RGC pseudogenes. Functional gene group contains sequences that are similar to proteins with known function, but not those in the RGC group. Plastid group includes sequences similar to chloroplast or mitochondrion.
