Reference Li W, Zhang P, Fellers JP, Friebe B, Gill BS. Sequence composition, organization, and evolution of the core Triticeae genome. Plant J. 2004 Nov40(4):500-11PubMed ID15500466
Method 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).
Comments Repeated sequences constituted 91.6% of the genome, transposable elements 68.2% of the genome
