Table 2 Coverage of the Holstein and Black Angus genomes

From: Whole genome resequencing of black Angus and Holstein cattle for SNP and CNV discovery

Genome Total reads Megabases of coverage Fold coverage
Holstein 2,041,487,844 49,069.31 18.63
Black Angus 2,840,328,583 57,730.10 21.91
  1. Megabases of coverage was calculated based on the numbers and lengths of reads that were successfully mapped to the reference. Fold coverage was calculated by dividing the megabases of coverage by the combined length of the reference chromosomes used for mapping (2,634,413,324 bp).
