comment Accuracy of genome size estimation by flow cytometry
@JeremyKemball No, it's not near an integer multiple, so it's not a ploidy issue. The reasoning behind the k-mer analysis is to identify a sequence that occurs once in the genome and count how many times it occurs as a proxy for coverage. Since that unique sequence is unknown, we instead examine k-mer distributions and look for the mode in those distributions.
