Gene regions contain lower amounts of TEs as compared to their wild relatives. a Pie charts showing the relative distributions of TEs associated with genes, and upstream and downstream gene regions. Note that the gene regions in the domesticated species contain relatively less TEs as compared to their wild relatives. Such differences are not evident in the upstream and downstream regions of the genes. b k-means clustering with heatmap based on the distribution of TEs in genes of the 12 chromosomes of the Oryza genomes. The color scale represents the number per 100,000 bases of TEs in genes (green, black and red refer to low, medium and high TEs numbers, respectively)
