DNA transposons Including CACTA, Ac/Ds, MULE, Mariner, ping/pong/SNOOPY. 3.6% of the genome in total. Within them, the CACTA subclass is the most abundant element, which involves more than half of all transposon sequences and comprises 2.1% of the Asparagus genome. https://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0097189
LINE/SINE Low abundance https://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0097189
MITE 1.6% of genome https://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0097189
Ty1/copia Most abundant throughout the genome, 2x more than gypsy. Most of the repeat groups had similar abundance in males and females, which was in agreement with the fact that the sex chromosomes of asparagus are in the early stages of sex chromosome evolution. https://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0097189
Ty3/gypsy One of the most abundant TE families https://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0097189
