- ... In hexaploid wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) (AABBDD, C = 17 000 Mb), repeat DNA accounts for approximately 90% of the genome, of which transposable elements (TEs) constitute 60%-80%. Despite the dynamic evolution of TEs, our previous study indicated that the majority of TEs are conserved and collinear between the homologous wheat genomes, based on identical insertion patterns. In this study, we expl ...
