Hash length vs log likelihood for G. clavigera. Log likelihoods of assemblies of G. clavigera reads are shown on the y-axis. Assemblies are generated using different assemblers for varying k-mer length, which is shown on the x-axis. The dotted lines correspond to the log likelihoods of the assemblies generated using Sanger, 454 and Illumina data.
