Breakpoint signature of mis-assembly in B. anthracis Ames Ancestor. The alignments of the four reads to the assembly indicate the collapse of a tandem repeat consisting of two copies of the section of the assembly between coordinates 144,337 and 146,944. Note how the alignment signature resembles the mate signature shown in Figure 2b.
