Additional file 18: Figure S6. of Developmental piRNA profiles of the invasive vector mosquito Aedes albopictus

Characterization of SINE-derived piRNAs. Base composition of SINE-derived piRNAs. The X-axis represents the nucleotide position relative to the 5′ ends of the piRNAs. The Y-axis represents the percentage of base bias. Lower pane: ping-pong pair analysis. The length of overlap is shown on the horizontal axes. Indicated above each axis is the number of possible overlapping pairs of small RNAs within a specified overlap size. Indicated below each axis is the relative frequency of the 5′ base identity for overlapping sequences. The colour code for bases is indicated in the centre box. (TIF 730 kb)
