Total k-mers1.56 × 10121.47 × 1012
Erroneous k-mers1.20 × 10102.20 × 1010
Total correct k-mers1.55 × 10121.45 × 1012
E(unique k-mer depth) mode49.7246.77
Estimated genome size31.1 Gbp30.9 Gbp
E(unique k-mer depth) mean48.5346.02
Estimated genome size31.9 Gbp31.4 Gbp
  • Erroneous k-mers refer to k-mers that were identified as likely to contain errors, and these were removed from the calculation.
