  1. 1 Distances are from the center of one cluster to the next. Only cluster with 100 cluster unique piRNAs or more we considered. N/A indicates that no other piRNA cluster was found on this supercontig.
  2. 2 In italics are the relative number of uniquely mapping piRNAs from each Ae. aegypti library. From left to right each number represents, library 1, 2,4,6,10, 11, and 12.
  3. 3 Percentage of all the reads mapping to the cluster that were derived from only one of the 7 Ae. aegypti libraries
