  1. aN50 s were also adjusted to use an assembly length of 400 Mb for all assemblies in order to facilitate comparisons across assemblies. Scaffold and contig N50 s adjusted for a 400 Mb assembly size were identical to unadjusted N50 s shown above, except for the PbDt scaffold N50 for which the adjusted N50 was 6,348,449 nt
