The ALLPATHS assembly of S. aureus. Each edge represents a contiguous and unambiguous sequence of bases and, for this assembly, each component is its own scaffold. Longer edges are in red, short edges in gray. The sizes of the gray edges and regions are in bases. Several key features are called out in blue boxes. Five short sequences totaling 9 kb are not shown. Images of the graphs for all five ALLPATHS assemblies of this paper are available at .
