  1. "Elements" denotes the number of repeat elements detected. "Percentage" denotes the ratio of length occupied by interspersed repeats to total length. GC content of unmasked region of Eco RI and Bam HI BESs were 35.49% and 37.05%, respectively. Overall GC content of Eco RI and Bam HI BESs were 37.45% and 40.30%, respectively.
