3' versus 5' overhangs in sequencing data

3' versus 5' overhangs in sequencing data

Recently, Eric Miller at NC State asked me about phage genome ends, and how a 3' overhang (sticky end) would look in an assembled genome compared to how a 5' overhang would look.  So I made a picture!  Hopefully it explains how you might diagnose either of these cases from sequencing reads, and how you can distinguish between them.
