a g level achieved (black line) and RMS vibration (1 s bins, blue line) and associated sequencing reads acquired during first set of parabolas. Each read is represented by a horizontal line (gray: partially or completely in transition period; red: completely in non-transition period) at its representative read quality score, \(q_{\bar p}\) (right axis). Vertical gray bands demarcate transitions between phases of flight. b Top scoring BLAST results for highest quality “Mars” read, indicated via arrow in a, length 6402. c Start of best match sequence alignment, to J02459.1 Enterobacteria phage lambda, complete genome, length 48502 (range 20562–27113, score 8907 bits(9877), expect 0.0, identities 6108/6651 (92%), gaps 395/6651 (5%), strand Plus/Minus). d Average genomic coverage of lambda for all parabolas based on tombo-aligned bases.
