Table 1 Classification of inversions and their solution: assuming the short read sequencing insert size is 500 bp

From: npInv: accurate detection and genotyping of inversions using long read sub-alignment

Class Inverted repeat size(bp) Inversion size(bp) Type of inversion Efficient detection method Number of inversions
Short [0,500]’ [2,INF) NHEJ/FoSTeS, NAHR Pair end mapping/Local assembly 52
Median (500,7000] (1000,INF) NAHR Split long read 23
Long (7000,INF) (14000,INF) NAHR Microscope, other 12
  1. INF means infinity
