  1. GS FLX shotgun assembly alone (SG) and when combined with 126 BAC-end sequences (SG+BE). aContigs are defined as more than one read joined by overlapping sequence. Large contigs defined as greater than 500 bp. bThe N50 contig size is defined as the largest contig size at which half of the total size of the contigs is represented by contigs larger than the N50 value.
