Next Generation Sequencing Provides Rapid Access to the Genome of Puccinia striiformis f. sp. tritici, the Causal Agent of Wheat Stripe Rust
Contigs are ordered by coverage (calculated using Bowtie ). Some repetitive regions are assembled into single contigs resulting in higher coverage and an underestimation of the genome size. The horizontal line indicates the median coverage (60.4x) and the dotted line the 2-fold coverage (120.8x) used as the threshold to calculate the proportion of the genome represented by contigs assembled from duplicated regions.
