  1. The experiments performed with both short jump (s.j.) and fragment libraries are done by picking the seeds from the short jump library only. We state that a contig is aligned against the reference if the alignment is a single hit covering 100% of contig's length and the percentage of identity is at least 95%. The statistics are computed on trusted contigs.
