Figure 1. Example coverage plot of sequenced genome of Coccidioides immitis. Plot shows base coverage (y-axis) of supercontig 6 from isolate from patient Z, who had coccidioidomycosis. Average depth of coverage for this supercontig was 48.63× over 3,385,806 bases (x-axis) for a total of 164,650,400 bases sequenced.
