Transcript length and protein length coverage of the An. albimanus An. albimanus transcriptome. The whole transcriptome was split in two subsets according to transcripts composed of Illumina reads only or Illumina plus either of the two other platforms (composite subset). To make datasets comparable, their frequency (y axis) was expressed as a percentage. A) Transcript length distribution for both subsets and the whole dataset reveals slightly longer transcripts in the composite subset. B)An. gambiae protein length coverage obtained by BLASTX with An. albimanus transcripts. A larger fraction of the Illumina only subset covers less than one third of its respective match in An. gambiae. C) Frequency of mapped An. albimanus transcripts per An. gambiae gene. Transcripts were mapped to the An. gambiae genome using Exonerate v 2.2 [79] in the EST to genome mode (DNA vs DNA).
