Sequence properties of TE-piRNAs and TE-siRNAs in
. (A) Sequence compilations showing relative nucleotide frequency per position for the siRNA population (21 nt) and the piRNA population (24-30 nt) associated with TEs (EnsemblMetazoa), coding genes and remaining sequences in An. gambiae (VectorBase). In all graphs, N indicates the number of reads. (B) Schematic representation of overlapping sequence offsets for siRNA and piRNA pairs. (C) Nucleotide composition of all TE-derived reads of length 21-nt (siRNAs) and 24-30-nt (piRNAs) mapped to the sense and antisense strand of the An. gambiae TE dataset. The overlap analysis offsets of siRNAs and piRNAs, sense reads and antisense reads are shown as indicated.
