  1. Parameters in parentheses were used for the human BSR dataset. Up to 3 to 4 sequencing errors or mutations were allowed in a 100-bp long BSR. Because the human genome contains many repeated genomic regions, 20 valid mapping locations were allowed for a given read when the alignment method supported this feature.
