Table 1 Assessment of closed gaps in the simulated assembly of Salmonella paratyphi

From: Improving draft assemblies by iterative mapping and assembly of short reads to eliminate gaps

Introduced gap length (kb) Fate of gaps
  Fraction closed with 100% identity False ratea
1 0.99 (145/147) 0 (0/145)
2 0.96 (136/142) 0.007 (1/137)
10 0.90 (102/113) 0.029(3/105)
  1. aThe false rate was determined by finding the number of misassemblies over number of closed gaps.
