Sequencing depth of the Koshihikari short reads generated using the Solexa Genome Analyzer with reference to the Nipponbare genome. The x-axis shows the physical distance along the rice reference genome (Nipponbare). Red lines indicate regions in which the Koshihikari short reads could not be mapped at all owing to low reliability of the Nipponbare reference sequence (i.e., regions containing more than 50% unidentified bases, Ns). The y-axis shows the sequencing depth, which represents the mean number of reads mapped in 100-kb windows. The mean total sequencing depth was 15.7× the genome (Table 1).
