Haloquadratum walsbyi : Limited Diversity in a Global Pond

Table 5

Targeting of Haloquadratum MGEs. This lists the 192 targeting events where one MGE was found inserted into another MGE. Rows indicate how frequently elements of the given category have targeted another element, while columns indicate how frequently an element of the given category has been affected by insertion of another element. More than half of the targeting events are caused by A-type SMRs (114, 59%), while the majority of the affected elements are from PATEs (106, 55%) or from IS605-type transposons (TP-A, 64, 33%). Thus, these related categories of elements suffered 88% of the foreign element insertions.
