Sorting scaffolds along Marburg 168 reference genome. The de novo assembled scaffolds were sorted using anchors along the strain Marburg 168 genome and aligned to the Marburg 168 reference genome. Anchors, which are short well-conserved subsequences between each scaffold and the reference genome, were calculated using Murasaki, a multiple genome comparison program . (Left, before sorting) Link plot between unsorted scaffolds and the Marburg 168 reference genome. (Right, after sorting) Link plot between sorted scaffolds and the reference genome. Each line between the scaffolds (upper part of the link plot) and the reference genome (lower) indicates an anchor between them.
