Repetitive Elements May Comprise Over Two-Thirds of the Human Genome

Figure 2

P-clouds and RepeatMasker annotation of the repeat structure of the human genome.

Results are displayed as a percentage of the ungapped genome assembly length. A) Consensus results prior to this study indicate that <50% of the genome is repetitive (RepeatMasker). B) Analysis using P-clouds suggests more than two-thirds of the genome is repetitive or repeat-derived.
