Default unique kmers in genome equation?

Hi all,

Just trying to make sure I've got this right. Is this the correct equation for calculating the number of expected unique kmers in a library:

Number of expected unique kmer = genome size + (number of reads)(mean length of read-kmer size - 1)(probably of error in read)

I think I might have this written down in my notes wrong. Anyone let me know if I messed up or not?
