Additional data file 1:

In this figure supercontigs are black lines denoted with purple letters. Regions of long alignment are denoted in turquoise (approximately to scale), with the length of the alignment in megabases. Regions of short alignment are denoted in pink (grossly out of scale to make them visible), with the length of the alignment in kilobases. Approximate positions of genetic markers are given by orange ovals, and their names are in blue. Linkage is shown by a red dashed line with the genetic distance indicated. Lack of a red dashed line between any two markers indicates no detectable linkage. Positions where the assembly is broken to account for the genetic map data are shown as circled lightning.

In this figure the x-axis diplays the maximum read coverage per contig and the y-axis displays the percentage of contigs in a category. Red bars indicate unassigned contigs, and blue bars indicate contigs assigned to an allelic bin.
