  1. 1 Adjusted for 1252 "NoFp" 0 band clones only (includes all clones with > = 1 band).
  2. 2 Adjusted for all 0–4 band clones, contamination-suspect clones and most high band number (>65) clones.
  3. 3 All repeat contigs with greater than 25 clones are represented in contig #'s 9000 and greater.
  4. 4 Includes 265 repeat contigs that have 15–19 clones (contig #'s 8000 – 8264) and 168 contigs that have 20–24 clones in contig #'s 9000 and greater.
