  1. The 454 and Illumina reads were assembled with four approaches (column 1-4). The resulting contig sets were combined into a final assembly with the MAIA algorithm [42]. Ordering and orienting the contigs using homology to the S288C chromosomes resulted in chromosomal scaffolds. The N50 is the length-weighted median of the contig lengths. Coverage on S288C indicates the number of base pairs from the S288C genome covered in the assembly.
