Figure 4

NG50 scaffold length distribution in bird assemblies and the fraction of the bird genome represented by gene-sized scaffolds. Primary Y-axis (red) shows NG50 scaffold length for bird assemblies: the scaffold length that captures 50% of the estimated genome size (~1.2 Gbp). Secondary Y-axis (blue) shows percentage of estimated genome size that is represented by scaffolds ≥25 Kbp (the average length of a vertebrate gene).
