  1. Notes:
  2. 1. The true number of large SVs will be underestimated. However, this will have only a marginal effect the magnitude of the estimation of the total number of SVs in a large chromosome or in the whole genome.
  3. 2. The true number of SVs in the whole genome is estimated by extrapolation of the corrected number of SVs in chromosome 1 by the fold increase in size from chromosome 1 to the whole genome.
