Running time and space peak for Readjoiner for all 24 read sets derived from human chromosomes. Running time (A) and space peak (B) of Readjoiner for all 24 read sets c1, c2, …, c22, cX, cY derived from the human chromosomes (ℓ
= 45). Each dot represents a human chromosome placed on the X-axes according to its length and on the Y-axes according to the running time (A) and the space peak (B) required by Readjoiner to process it. The line was fitted to the dots using the least square regression command lm from the R-project http://www.r-project.org/. This delivered R2 = 0.997 for the running time and R2 = 0.998 for the space peak.
