Simulation results for each of the GAGE reference genomes. Each simulated (N,L) point is marked with the number of correct reconstructions (e.g. 93, 98, 95) on 100 simulated read sets. All four algorithms (GREEDY, DE BRUIJN, SIMPLE BRIDGING, and MULTI BRIDGING) were run on S. Aureus, R. sphaeroides and hc14. Note that MULTI BRIDGING is very close to the lower bound on all 3 datasets.
