  1. (B )through (C ) – Distances between the conventional nDNA signature of a fragment and its assembled DNA signatures, using variable-length contigs taken from a normal distribution N(n,σ), with mean n and variance σ=40. The nDNA fragment used was from H. sapiens, chromosome 21, fragment 20 (from position 2,850,001 to 3,000,000 after removing all Ns in the original sequence)
