  1. “Bulk” samples are the unsheared bulks. “Phos.” samples are the phosphatase-treated unsheared bulks. “Sheared” samples are the sheared bulks. “% Mapped” indicates the percentage of the total number of reads comprised by the reads mapped onto the Variola genome. “Molecular Length” is the mean length (± standard deviation) of the mapped reads.
