  1. All reads are sequenced from the same O104:H4 E. coli isolate. Substitution, insertion, deletion, and homopolymer corrections are performed on all data sets except for MiSeq, for which we do not perform homopolymer corrections. The percentage of reads which were removed as a consequence of more than 50% unique k-mers is provided under Reads Removed.
