The file contains the annotation for the repetitive regions in Linum tenue.

The detection of repeats has been done with RepeatMasker/RepeatModeler ( using a custom repeat library.

The genome has been deposited to ENA with the accession id: GCA_946122785 (Project PRJEB52918). See link below.

It is part of this article Gutiérrez-Valencia, J., Fracassetti, M., Berdan, E. L., Bunikis, I., Soler, L., Dainat, J., ... & Slotte, T. (2022). Genomic analyses of the Linum distyly supergene reveal convergent evolution at the molecular level. Current Biology, 32(20), 4360-4371. 10.1016/j.cub.2022.08.042

Example of the data:

1306 15.6 6.2 0.0 HSU08988 6563 6781 (22462) C MER7A DNA/MER2_type (0) 336 103

1306 = Smith-Waterman score of the match, usually complexity adjusted. The SW scores are not always directly comparable. Sometimes the complexity adjustment has been turned off, and a variety of scoring-matrices are used.

15.6 = % substitutions in matching region compared to the consensus

6.2 = % of bases opposite a gap in the query sequence (deleted bp)

0.0 = % of bases opposite a gap in the repeat consensus (inserted bp)

HSU08988 = name of query sequence

6563 = starting position of match in query sequence

7714 = ending position of match in query sequence

(22462) = no. of bases in query sequence past the ending position of match

C = match is with the Complement of the consensus sequence in the database
