  1. These statistics were calculated on LTR-RTs of six plant genomes found in Repbase. In Repbase, an LTR-RT is reported as two sequences: the LTR sequence and the interior sequence. Default length parameters were chosen to approximate the most extreme values found in the dataset, which appear in boldface. To calculate the total length of an LTR-RT, we concatenated two LTR sequences to the two sides of its interior sequence
