CRISPR array identification and ARG allele class counts were influenced by assembly quality. a The long-read assembly (dark orange) contigs had fewer identified CRISPR arrays than the short-read contigs (dark green); however, the CRISPR arrays with the largest count of spacers were overrepresented in the long-read assembly. b The long-read assembly had 13-fold higher antimicrobial resistance gene (ARG) alleles than the short-read assembly despite having 5-fold less sequence data coverage. The macrolide, lincosamide, and tetracycline ARG classes were particularly enriched in the long-read assembly compared to alleles identified in the short-read assembly
