PMCID: 5906920
PMID: 29684203
DOI: 10.1093/gbe/evy058

[…] for 4,584 highly conserved single-copy actinopterygian genes (additional file 1: s4, online)., we also assessed the assembly quality of the three different assembly versions with the software frcbam (), which identifies “features” (incorrectly mapped reads, incorrect insert size, and coverage issues) in each of the assemblies, and ranks the different assembly versions according […]

[…] if a reference sequence is available, quast can also describe mis-assemblies and structural variations relative to the reference. if paired illumina data is available, tools such as reapr or frcbam can be used to evaluate assemblies and to identify which assembly has the least amount of misassemblies. if other organisms were present in the reads (contaminants or symbionts) […]

[…] to 31.92% for the ml2 assembly and 872 fragment coverage distribution (fcd) errors within contigs compared to 1871 in the ml2 assembly (supplementary fig. ). another genome assembly evaluation tool, frcbam, which calculates feature response curves for several assembly parameters, also shows better overall quality of the mlig_3_7 assembly (supplementary fig. ). finally, 96.9% of transcripts […]

DOI: 10.1093/bioinformatics/btt178

[…] a trivial undertaking and will need to be performed, as the assembly evolves from its draft stage toward a more established reference. for example, de novo assembly evaluation tools such as cgal (), frcbam () and ale () would either not scale to the size of the problem or require substantial time and computational resources. still, compared with previous targeted gene and genome subsampling […]
