  1. The Variable Elements count refers the total numbers of elements that vary from the canonical sequence by a single nucleotide substitution, insertion or deletion. Total Mbp is the total length of sequence of that satellite per genome calculated by multiplying the length of the element by the number of variable elements. For B. neohumeralis and B. jarvisi only the number of variable elements is shown since the genome size was not estimated.
