The higher the depth of read coverage, the better statistical strength this consensus sequence has, as correct reads at any individual position increasingly outnumber individual read errors.
In Escherichia coli the SOS gene network is under control of the RecA protein which, as consequence of DNA damage, induces the autoproteolysis of LexA repressor which binds the 16 bp palindromic consensus sequence named LexA-binding box.
Analysis of both BLAST and BOLD confirmed that the consensus sequence (KF472312) generated from this insect was in the superfamily Fulgoroidea; however, no significant match could be made below this taxonomic level.

The consensus sequence constructed from these fragments had 98% or greater nucleotide sequence identity with SSU rRNA gene sequences of strains of Neoparamoeba pemaquidensis and associated with high confidence in distance- and parsimony-based phylogenetic analyses with strains of Neoparamoeba pemaquidensis and not members of the family Paramoebidae, e.
