||Researchers sequenced an unfiltered genomic shotgun (trs) and a methylation–filtration (tmf) library of A. tauschii, and analyzed wheat expressed sequence tags (ESTs) to estimate the expression of genes and transposable elements (TEs).
||Repeated sequences constituted 91.6% of the genome, Retroelements constituted 53.5% of the repeated fraction representing 39 (12 Ty1-copia, 20 Ty3-gypsy, five LINE, and two TRIM) families. Multiplying 91.6 % by 0.535 gives 49%
