Average Fragment Size Generated By Endonuclease Cleavage

Average fragment sizes were generated from long contiguous stretches of DNA sequence available from public databases. For each organism, the length of DNA sequence evaluated was: E.coli, 4.6 Mb; M.tuberculosis, 4.4 Mb; P.abyssi, 1.8 Mb; S.cerevisiae, 12.1 Mb; A.thaliana, 1.8 Mb; C.elegans, 100 Mb; D.melanogaster, 3.8 Mb; M.musculus, 2.6 Mb and H.sapiens, 22 Mb.
