Comments

The density of insertions of Tni\piggyBac transgenic constructs in D. melanogaster is significantly lower in underreplicated regions of the genome (URs) compared to neighboring regions or the genomic average. Testis-specific genes have a low frequency of insertions of Tni\piggyBac transgenic constructs.

A TTAA duplicated target site is characteristic of Tni\piggyBac integrations.
