Considering that such genomes are haploid, we set the ploidy to 1 and used the multiallelic and rare variant calling model as opposed to the consensus model, which assumes biallelic sites.

Other complexities include the presence of multiallelic sites (identification of more than 2 variant alleles at the same nucleotide position; Figure 13); Sanger sequencing of this region confirmed the presence of 2 different alleles at the same nucleotide position, in addition to the wild-type allele, and also confirmed the presence of the insertion event that was located downstream of the detected triallelic variant site.
Members of the Asteraceae typically possess a multiallelic sporophyllic incompatibility system that requires both S alleles to differ between pollen and stigma.

Accurate measurement of such CNVs has posed a technical challenge that is exacerbated at multiallelic loci (27, 28).
