A series of contigs that are in the right order but not necessarily connected in one continuous sequence. Generally assembled from whole-genomes shotgun clones.  They're normally non-overlapping, however this might not be the case if there is more than one highly-polymorphic haplotype. 

Scaffold = contigs + gaps.
