Glomales repetitive elements

A recent paper identifies “Twenty-five repetitive elements … in the genomes of the arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungi Gigaspora margarita, Gig. rosea and Glomus mosseae“.

I think it will be interesting to see which of these are unique to Glomeromycota. Their findings include three gypsy-like LTR elements which are similar to those found in other organisms.
