Log likelihood vs N50 scaffold length for E. coli. Log likelihoods are shown on the x-axis and N50 scaffold lengths are shown on the y-axis. Each circle corresponds to an assembly generated using an assembler for some hash length and the sizes of the circles correspond to similarity with reference. The R2 values are: (i) log likelihood vs similarity: 0.9372048, (ii) log likelihood vs N50 scaffold length: 0.44011, (iii) N50 scaffold length vs similarity: 0.3216882.
