Typical issues in contigs produced by long-read assemblers representing circular sequences. In each example, the assembly is in a single contig, colored with a mix of green and blue, and the reference is shown in gray. Matches between the reference and assembly are shown in light blue. The plot below each reference sequence shows the number of matches to the assembly at each position of the reference sequence. a The contig has low-quality ends representing the same sequence, which needs resolving into one sequence. b The contig has missing sequence. c A small circular sequence is assembled into multiple tandem copies
