Kmer spectrum. Using Jellyfish v1.1.10, 17-mers were counted in a subset of whole genome shotgun paired-end reads corresponding to the PE560 2x150 sequencing run. The density plot of the number of unique kmer species (y axis) for each kmer frequency (x axis) is plotted. The homozygous peak is observed at a multiplicity (kmer coverage) of 52 x, while the heterozygous peak is observed at 26 x. The tail extending to the right represents repetitive sequences. The total number of kmers present in this subset was 71,902,584,399. From these data, the Genome Character Estimator (gce) estimates the genome size to be 1.32 Gb
