From: Evolutionary patterns of RNA-based gene duplicates in Caenorhabditis nematodes coincide with their genomic features

Figure 1

All chimeric types exist in Caenorhabditis nematodes (Boxes and solid lines represent exons and introns, respectively). I: retrocopy becomes (part of) the first exon in chimeric gene (region bc); II: retrocopy becomes (part of) the last exon in chimeric gene (region kl); III: retrocopy becomes (part of) the exon between the first and the last one (region ef); IV: retrocopy becomes the first exon and part of 5’ non-coding region in chimeric gene (region ac); V: retrocopy becomes 2 exons and the intron between them (region ei).
