Distribution of read alignments along the reference using BLASR. Each mapped read (only 40 reads are depicted here) is depicted by a blue bar. Percent identity to the reference is displayed by the tint, with lighter blue being more identical to the reference. A majority of the reads mapped here were approximately 70-75% identical to the reference. Many mapped reads span the entire length of the reference, represented on the x-axis, with no overhang.
