Figure 4

Global nesting graph at the level of individual TEs. Nesting relationships among TEs are depicted as a directed, acyclic graph. Nodes (blue circles) represent individual TEs and directed edges (green arrows) represent transposition events that create primary nesting relationships, with complex nesting events represented as connected components of the graph. The majority of nests in the genome are characterized by one or more primary nesting relationships, while some larger nests are composed of secondary or tertiary nesting relationships. The largest nest (*) currently annotated in the genome is found on chromosome 2R at coordinates 1,763,561-1,829,561. The second largest nest (**) currently annotated in the genome has been described in detail previously by Maside et al. [34] and is found on chromosome X at coordinates 21,366,773-21,333,853.
