From the pdf: I hope this is not the read length of the final product or the read length here is not the same thing as the read length I know...

"4 Read length distribution
GATGAT GTGATG TATAG TGAGTAGTAGTGTATA ATGATG GAGT GAGT TGTGATGAT
Figure 6: Data set with reads of four or more bases highlighted.
After collapsing homopolymer subsequences, the reference sequence contains 18 bases. This data set contains 23 reads,
of which the longest is 16 bases (again treating homopolmers as single bases). Events in the signal that most likely
represent a read of single base were ignored in these counts.
The average read length was 3.95, for a total of 91 bases over 0.2 seconds. The 8 reads of 4 or more bases are shown
in Figure 5."
