  1. This table provides the statistics about the contigs generated by various combinations of assemblers and data sets. The statistics reported include the number of contigs, total length of sequence, number of contigs ≥ 1 kbp, the total length of contigs ≥ 1 kbp, the size of the largest contig, the percent GC, and the N50.
