For each age group, we give the number and corresponding percentage of exons that overlap with different repetitive elements: SINEs (Alu and other), LINE, DNA, LTR and Other. Eight PS exons overlap more than one element (Mixed). We count as overlap when the element covers at least one of the splice sites of the exon.
