  1. Space saving of Scramble and IonCRAM for groups of test files. The second and third columns include the BAM and CRAM file sizes in GB, respectively. In Column 4, we show the saving in flow signal achieved by Scramble in the CRAM format. In Column 5, the overall space saving achieved by Scramble in the CRAM format compared to the original BAM file. Columns 6, 7, and 8 show the IonCRAM file size, percent saving in flow signals and overall saving, respectively. The final column compares overall percentage saving of IonCRAM compared to the respective CRAM files produced by Scramble.
