Table 1 Summary of assembly and EST data

From: High-throughput sequencing and analysis of the gill tissue transcriptome from the deep-sea hydrothermal vent mussel Bathymodiolus azoricus

Number of Reads 582,650
Total Bases 181 Mb
Average read length after MIRA 312
Number of contigs 75,407
Average contig length 509
Range contig length 40-3,400
Number of singletons 3,071
Number of Contigs with 2 reads 29,206
Number of Contigs with > 2 reads 43,130
Contigs with BLASTx matches (E-value ≤ 10-6) 18,407
*Remaining contigs with additional matches (E-value ≤ 10-2) 3,616
Contigs determined by ESTscan 17,402
**Total number of transcripts 39,425
**Total number of putatively translated amino-acids sequences 42,073
  1. *contigs without BLASTx matches at an E-value cut-off of 10-6 were queried again with BLASTx with an E-value cut-off of 10-2
  2. ** The difference between the number of transcripts and total number of amino-acid sequences is due to the possibility of a contig having more than one annotated protein hit.
