Illumina TruSeq Synthetic Long-Reads Empower De Novo Assembly and Resolve Complex, Highly-Repetitive Transposable Elements

Figure 4

Assembly metrics as a function of depth of coverage of TruSeq synthetic long-reads.

A: NG(X) contig length for full and down-sampled coverage data sets. This metric represents the size of the contig for which X% of the genome length (180 Mbp) lies in contigs of that size or longer. B: The proportion of genes and transposable elements accurately assembled (100% length and sequence identity) for full and down-sampled coverage data sets.
