Additional file 17: of Transposable element insertions shape gene regulation and melanin production in a fungal pathogen of wheat

Melanization and Zmr1 expression levels in Z. tritici strains from around the world. Means and standard errors of the mean of gray values (0 = black, 255 = white) and of Zmr1 expression at 7 days post inoculation. n indicates the number of colonies analyzed. Gray values were measured in three independent experiments, and similar results were obtained. Expression analysis was performed twice and provided similar results.
