Table 1 Total number of microsatellite repeats and percentage of regions with at least one repeat in the S. cerevisiae genome. The e value denotes the number of bases in any part of a repeat within which no more than one mismatch was allowed with respect to the consensus motif. A lower e value therefore results in the detection of more imperfect repeats.
