  1. * Reads that are submittable and > 100 bp. ** Threshold for Blastx significance = 1e-10. Gene discovery is defined as the number of different "genes" each library contributed, divided by library size. Gene Diversity is defined as the number of singletons in each library divided by library size [22].
