Method P.245 right column 2nd paragraph: "Genome sequencing and assembly. The 121-megabase (Mb) draft sequence (ref 10) of the Chlamydomonas nuclear genome was generated at 13× coverage by whole-genome, shotgun endsequencing of plasmid and fosmid libraries, followed by assembly into ~1500 scaffolds (primary source). Half of the assembled genome is contained in 25 scaffolds, each longer than 1.63Mb. The genome is unusually GC-rich (64%) (Table 1), which required modification of standard sequencing protocols. Alignments of expressed sequence tags (ESTs) to the genome suggest that the draft assembly is 95% complete (primary source)."
