MUMmer alignment dot plot of M. roreri and M. perniciosa contigs using only contigs 50 kb or larger. The line graph represents the MUMmer results for the nucleotide comparison of M. roreri contigs to M. perniciosa contigs with a size cutoff of 50 kb. Only contigs larger than 50 kb were compared and contigs with no corresponding homology were eliminated from this particular analysis. Red circles represent positive strand alignments while blue circles represent negative strand alignments. The insert represent an enlargement of the MUMmer graph at that location. The 50 kb contigs utilized in this analysis for M. roreri account for 23,142,326 bp or 44% of the total 52,334,081 bp genome, where as for M. perniciosa 21,535,677 bp were, used which represents 48% of the 44,661,472 bp genome.
