Table 3 HGT inserts from Wolbachia present in the genome of F. exsecta with details of its length and position in the F. exsecta genome. The presence of similar insert regions in other eukaryote genomes is also shown

From: The first draft genomes of the ant Formica exsecta, and its Wolbachia endosymbiont reveal extensive gene transfer from endosymbiont to host
