Input Assembly software Number of transcripts Number of bases assembled N50 (bp) Number of singleton reads Median contig length (bp) Mean contig length (bp) Maximum contig length (bp)
454 reads (two libraries merged) CLC Genomics Workbench 18 794 14 257 486 897 94 753 586 759 11 217
Illumina reads (six libraries merged) Trinity 196 766 187 289 921 1 828 NA 447 952 30 278
  1. N50 size = the length such that 50 % of the assembled genome lies in N50 size or greater; NA = not applicable to results from this assembly program
