Comparison of K-mer spectra in the C. cardunculus RAD contig assembly vs the full genomes of A. thaliana, V. vinifera and F. vesca. K-mer (k = 10) distribution for C. cardunculus (A) was evaluated both on pre-assembly sequence data (outer box) and contig sequences (inner box). K-mer populations have been split on the basis of their CpG content. × axis represents the number of occurrences of a given 10-mer; Y axis reports the amount of different 10-mers reporting that occurrence count.
