Assume that the distribution of samples follows a Poisson function

P(k)=e-m mk/k! where m=expected occurances per trial (<=1) and k=number of events(1)
P(1)=0.367879441 P(0+1)=0.735758882

Therefore in 5561 trials (number of clones sequenced) expect 4092 unique clones.Since we obtained 2979 unique clones, we covered about 73{8d268aa641ecff601d4b5a63c15a5c2cf38663bc49e45b05fc4a17464d1bf686} of the library.
