Effect of dynamically trimmed versus untrimmed reads on de novo assembly with the Velvet assembler. Dynamically trimmed reads (solid symbols) relative to untrimmed reads (open symbols) yield improved N50 values (red squares) and maximum contig sizes (blue triangles). Summary statistics were averaged across de novo assemblies for 20 isolates of Campylobacter coli and C. jejuni, and normalized by the total number of reads employed in each assembly.
