Figure 6.

The mapability of simulated sequences from theE. coli,A. thaliana, and human genomes. Mapping accuracy is shown on a Phred scale ( <a onClick="popup('http://www.biomedcentral.com/1471-2105/13/238/mathml/M12','MathML',630,470);return false;" target="_blank" href="http://www.biomedcentral.com/1471-2105/13/238/mathml/M12">View MathML</a>) for all three plots. Reads were simulated with base accuracies 1−ρ = 80%, 85%, … , 100%. In the fraction ρof positions that are erroneous, we simulated 10% substitutions, 62% insertions, and 28% deletions. Missing values have no mismapped reads.
