Exploring the Genes of Yerba Mate (Ilex paraguariensis A. St.-Hil.) by NGS and De Novo Transcriptome Assembly

Figure 3

Proportion and frequencies of predicted SSRs in Ilex paraguariensis transcriptome.

(a) Proportion of SSR predicted in yerba mate transcriptome categorized by k-mer length. (b) ct/ag-tc/ga account for 84% of di-nucleotide SSRs found in yerba mate. (c) Frecuency of tri-nucleotide SSRs predicted in yerba mate. With over 26% of the hits, aag/ctt-tct/aga-ttc/gaa are the most common SSR found in Ilex paraguariensis.
