aStatistics of the current draft assemblies assuming the conversion between C-value and bp is 0.987 × 109 bp/pg [90]. For this table, we calculated N50 in terms the size of our assembly rather than the estimated genome size.

bN/A: not available as the genome sequencing and assembly is in progress.
