Differences in O. moubata and O. porcinus piRNA identity with specific ASFV genotypes and ASFLI-elements. piRNA (28-29 nt) reads from O. moubata (originating from southern Africa) and O. porcinus ticks (originating from East Africa) (a) were mapped against available ASFV whole-genome sequences from different genotypes with Bowtie (b). While the lowest number of mapped O. moubata piRNA reads was observed for ASFV genotypes shown to infect O. moubata (ASFV-GT I, XII, VIII, XXII), the lowest number of O. porcinus piRNA reads mapped to ASFV genotype X able to infect O. porcinus (b). With up to 100% sequence identity, 86.023 (O. moubata) and 17.132 (O. porcinus) reads mapped to the ASFLI-elements (c)
