Fig. 4

Empirical length distribution of k-mismatch common substring extensions. The number of k-mismatch extensions of length m was calculated with kmacs for a pair of simulated DNA sequences of length \(L=500\) kb with \(k=90\) and \(80 \le m \le 240\). The plot shows the raw frequencies and smoothed distribution with different values for for the width w of the smoothing window. The hight of the ‘homologous’ peak is > 50,000
