The increase of the number of mapped scaffolds (195) between version 3.0 and 4.0 of the genome assembly is less than the total number of unplaced scaffolds (379) in version 3.0 that were mapped in version 4.0 because many scaffolds were merged into previously mapped scaffolds or combined with other previously unmapped scaffolds.
