  1. The repeat contents of three regions of the silkworm genome were compared: duplicated regions as detected by whole-genome analysis comparison; 2.5-kb flanking regions immediately flanking the clustered duplications and the genome average. Enrichment was defined as the repeat content of duplicated sequences divided by the repeat content of unique sequences.
