OFDEG as a function of sequence complexity. The effect on the reduction in error rate when varying the complexity of a sequence, represented here by the probability of base change p. As expected, we see that for sequences with more widely distributed OF profiles, a lower error gradient results as is seen with sequences composed of 4 bases as opposed to say 1 to 3 bases. Further, an increase in the complexity of the sequence, by allowing numerous base changes over the sequence length we also arrive at a lower error gradient.
