Microintrons are preferentially located near the transcription start site and cluster together. a. Intron length distribution in O. felineus genome. b. A bimodal distribution of microintrons in flatworm genomes. The dashed line represents intron distribution in C. sinensis transcriptome assembly of raw RNA-seq data. c. Relative localization of introns within the O. felineus genes. Red line and scale represent a fraction of micro-introns among all introns. d. Microintrons tend to cluster together within O. felineus genes
