a Vector reads: The reads sequences are all vector sequences.

b Low quality reads: After removing empty reads and vector reads, the length of reads is less than the cutoff length (100 bp).

c High quality reads: After removing empty reads and vector reads, the length of reads is more than the cutoff length (100 bp).

d Contigs: reads number ≥ 2.

e Singlets: reads = 1.

f Unigenes = Contigs + Singlets.
