Assess genome assemblies with Merqury¶
This session is part of Biodiversity Genomics Academy 2023
Arang Rhie Staff Scientist, Genome Informatics Section, National Institutes of Health
Steven Solar Bioinformatics Scientist, Genome Informatics Section, National Institutes of Health
By the end of this session you will be able to:
- Run Meryl and Merqury yourself
- Learn how to interpret k-mer histogram and copy-number spectrum plots of haploid, diploid, or poly-ploid genome assemblies
- Understand QV, completeness, haplotype switch outputs
- Get familiar with some other useful tools in Meryl or Merqury
Basic understanding for genome assembly related terminologies, such as QV, N50, NG50, contigs, and scaffolds
