Two scenarios. a. The reference is a gene or a functional site (long green bar). The reads are represented by short lines. Short green lines can be mapped to the reference sequence and define the set of seed reads. The first iteration of overlap detection will identify new reads (blue lines) overlapping with the seed reads. The second iteration of overlap detection will identify more reads (red lines). b. The reference is a remotely related genome (long green bar). The seed reads can be mapped to the reference genome and are represented by short green lines. Two iterations of overlap detection will recruit new reads (blue lines and red lines, respectively)
