  1. aNumber of repetitive elements (models) in each group. bPercentage of available (cytologically euchromatic) chromosome sequence. cPercentage of elements in each group that are inserted into any other repetitive element. dDensity of repetitive element insertions (of any kind) per kilo base pairs of sequence within each group. Non-repetitive sequence here means that similarity to known families of high complexity repeats was not detected, but it includes low-complexity repeats. Excludes satellite repeats arrayed in tandem. (Satellites considered are high-complexity repeats).
