Percentage of total ovine BESs positioned vs. percentage of total ovine BESs in tail-to-tail pairs. A) Full length ovine BESs. B) Ovine BESs trimmed to 240 bases in length. In A) the observed results from running MegaBLAST using a contiguous word size of 8 (MBc8) are shown as blue triangles, and the observed results from running MegaBLAST with a contiguous word size of 11 (MBc11) are shown as blue squares. The transition of the megablast curves in both A) and B) from right to left show the effect of increasing the score cut-off from no score cut-off (right most symbol) to score cut-offs starting at 40 and increasing in increments of 5 up to 100 (left most symbol).
