Scatterplot of contig G+C content versus coverage. Scatterplot of contig G+C content versus fold sequence coverage shows a clear mode of G+C content in the range of 32-56%. The long tail of low G+C contigs includes low-complexity sequences such as AT repeats, as well as mitochondrial and ribosomal contigs. A secondary mode of high G+C contigs is also apparent; these contigs include many BLAST matches to the bacterial order Actinomycetales (see text).
