  1. Percentages of exons and ψexons, introns and ψintrons, TE and SSR were computed according to the size of the nucleotide sequence. Percentage of intergenic sequences represents the rest of the sequence. In these statistics, the five and four Gag-Polymerase -encoding genes of B1 and B2 respectively, were not taken into account. ψ, pseudogene; TE, transposable element; SSR, simple sequence repeat; RGA, resistance gene analog.
