Distribution of sRNAs among TEs. (A) sRNA counts. Box plots represent the distribution of the total counts of sRNA perfectly matching wheat TEs of the seven major superfamilies deposited in the TREP database. Numbers above the whiskers represent the number of TREP elements within each superfamily considered.
(B) sRNA density. Same data as before but adjusted by the size of the TEs. The inset represents all superfamiles excluding Mariner and an expanded scale.
(C) Bar graph representing the percentage of 21 and 24 nucleotide sRNAs out of the total number that perfectly matched each superfamily of wheat TEs. Bars represent standard errors of the means.
