Error rates as a function of homopolymer length. Each graph shows mismatch (light blue), deletion (dark blue), and insertion (maroon) rates (y-axis) within homopolymers of various lengths (x-axis). Data are plotted from P. falciparum and human as available (Table 2, data sets 1 to 3 and 14 to 16). For human we note that bona fide differences between the sample and the reference sequence were recorded as errors.
