Figure 3

Transition and transversion mutation rates in TE copies from fungal genomes. Transition (Ti, Y axis, log10) and Transversion (Tv, X axis, log10) . Mutation rates were calculated using RIPCAL by comparing each TE copy with the TE consensus sequence or the genomic copy with the highest GC content through multiple alignments. Each dot corresponds to the log10(sum Ti) vs. log10(sum Tv) of a TE family. ~(Ti/Tv) is the mean of Ti/Tv for all the families in the analysis. The black line corresponds to the linear regression line between the two series (Ti vs Tv). The red line corresponds to an equiprobable mutation rate (Ti/Tv = 0.5). The Lmac and Atha dot plots are red and green respectively to highlight the pattern of positive and negative controls respectively.
