  • a “Locus” refers to each unique 105-bp locus as represented by unique flanking sequence. “105No” reflects each 105 copy in each genome as originally assigned in web Tables 8 to 10. “Not 105” means the sequence match between two or three genomes does not include the 105 bp element. “No match” means there is no significant match (>80% nucleotide identity in over 351 bp). In the “Indel” columns, the “d” and “i” following a number indicate a “deletion” or an “insertion,” respectively. Here “deletion” and “insertion” merely means the presence or absence of a specific length of sequence element. “Q?” means the indel identification was not clear from the sequence alignment. “ND” means the indel identification was not done. NA, not applicable.
