  1. NOTE. Note: Only Triticeae species are presented, because only these species, except for Aegilops speltoides, have been identified as having upwards of 60% DNA sequences in the most common classes and superfamilies of transposable elements. The Others column is for non-LTR retrotransposons, simple repeats and unclassified sequences
