Coverage of different TE classes in genome, lncRNA, and protein-coding exons in human, mouse, and zebrafish.

For genomes, total length (100%) corresponds to total length of assembly without gaps (human: 2,897 Mb. Mouse: 2,620 Mb. Zebrafish: 1,401 Mb). For lncRNAs, total length of genomic projection of all of exons are considered (human, Genc. = Gencode v13: 14.2 Mb. Human, Cabili set: 8.5 Mb. Mouse, Ens70 = Ensembl 70: 2.8 Mb. Mouse, Kutter: 0.15 Mb. Zebrafish: 2.3 Mb). For protein coding genes (pc genes), total length of CDS exons, 5′ and 3′UTR respectively are as follow: human, 30.9 Mb, 5.2 Mb, 24.6 Mb. Mouse: 30.5 Mb, 4.0 Mb, 21.6 Mb. Zebrafish: 19.1 Mb, 33.6 Mb, 12.5 Mb. Only pc genes from Refseq annotations with CDS and UTR features are considered (see Methods). Percentage of coverage of all TEs is indicated above bars.
