[…] AnA50 (50 % of the total assembly contains collinear segments with length over AnA50 bp), and AnG50 (50 % of the estimated genome size contains collinear anchored segments with length over AnG50 bp). MaGuS also generates Anx, AnAx, and AnGx graphs (based on the Nx graph []) that is a plot of the metrics for x values ranging from 1 to 100 %. […]
