Assessing the Quality of Genome Assemblies using QUAST

A step-by-step guide on how to use QUAST to assess and compare the quality of genome assemblies

The assembly algorithms that have been developed so far intend to provide better assemblies evaluated under different criteria. Hence, depending on the specific scenario the assembly process might produce better results if we use the most appropriate assembler. Even though contiguous genomes may not be produced, segments from the reference genomes can be obtained using existing…
