Relationship between the number of heterozygous sites in an ambiguous genotype (x-axis) and haplotype pair reconstruction error (y-axis). Simulated datasets (solid circles) and empirical datasets (open circles) both showed strong negative correlations (r = -0.692 and r = -0.655, respectively). The plot is identical for the 0.90 and 0.60 PHASE confidence probability thresholds (the latter not shown).
