Distributions of search results. The histograms show the number of matches retrieved for various oligomer sizes in three genomes: fly (dm5), chicken (gg4), and human (hg19). Each histogram is computed over 100,000 randomly generated oligomers from the respective genome. The number of matches is shown on a logarithmic scale. The arithmetic mean of each distribution is shown by a dashed vertical line, and the numerical value is shown next to the line
