Figure 5

Global nesting graph at the level of TE families. Nodes (blue circles) represent TE families and directed edges (green arrows) represent observed instances of primary nesting relationships. Redundant edges that arise from the different instances in the genome of the same primary nesting event are not shown. Essentially all families of TEs form a single connected component. Note that cycles within and between families at the family level are formed from nests of individuals from different genomic locations.
