  1. The table replicates the output of the procedure “J_Check_AlignedConsensus”. Following the columns of the six samples, where the given numbers are the T-RF sizes in bases, are columns for the number of T-RFs, the minimum T-RF size, the maximum T-RF size and the mean T-RF size in each alignment bin. The last column is either “Yes” or “No”, indicating whether the alignment bin is ambiguous or not.
