Benchmark data of cDNA libraries
Database parameter P. brachycephalum Z. viviparus
Total Number of reads 481,802 ~400,000
Number assembled 338,993 349,102
Average of read length 321 221

Percentage of redundancy 1.42 0.25

Overall statistical analyses of the sequencing runs of Z. viviparus data of the library generated by Kristiansson et al. 2009, in comparison to the library of the Antarctic eelpout P. brachycephalum. The resulting reads were set up to contigs with similar assembly techniques. Further analyses of the contig quality could be seen in Figure 2.
