Example construction of true assemblies with different minimum overlap lengths. Six reads (red) are positioned at their true places of origin along one transcript (blue). The assembly with minimum overlap length w=0 consists of two contigs (green). For w=1, the assembly instead consists of three contigs because the second and third reads from the left are immediately adjacent but not overlapping.
