Fig. 2

Comparing the accuracy of Mash and Skmer on simulated genomes. Genome skims are simulated using ART with read length =100. Substitutions applied to the assembly of C. vestalis at six different rates (x-axis), and genome skims simulated at varying coverage range from \(\frac {1}{8}\) to 16 ×. The estimated distance (y-axis) by Mash (left) and Skmer (right) is plotted versus the real distances for each coverage level (color). The mean (dots) and standard error (lines) of distances are shown (10 repeats). True distance is shown in red. See Additional file 1: Figure S1 for a scaled representation
