  • Description

    (QUality ASsessment Tool) evaluates genome assemblies by computing various metrics, including N50, length for which the collection of all contigs of that length or longer covers at least 50% of assembly length; NG50, where length of the reference genome is being covered; NA50 and NGA50, where aligned blocks instead of contigs are taken; misassemblies, misassembled and unaligned contigs or contigs bases; and genes and operons covered. QUAST also builds convenient plots for different metrics, such as cumulative contigs length, all kinds of N-metrics, genes and operons covered, and GC content.
