K-mer (17mer) frequency analysis of the S. indicum genomic sequence. Data produced from 500 bp insert libraries. The peak k-mer frequency is 39 and its minimum point is 10. Genome size was estimated with the formula: Estimated genome size (bp) = total number of k-mers with a frequency >10/peak k-mer frequency.
