The largest continuous sequence for an organism. The official technical definition for toplevel sequences are 'sequence regions in the genome assembly that are not a component of another sequence region'. For example, when a genome is assembled into chromosomes, toplevel sequences will be chromosomes and unplaced scaffolds. If a genome has only been assembled into scaffolds, then toplevel sequences are scaffolds and unplaced contigs.
