Reference genome assessment from a population scale perspective: an accurate profile of variability and noise

PMCID: 5870781
PMID: 28961772
DOI: 10.1093/bioinformatics/btx482

[…] s a pair-end mapped sample of similar characteristics to the evaluated reference genome in order to detect incongruous genomic patterns that are directly related to assembly artifacts. More recently, misFinder () combined a similar approach with the help of a near species reference genome, also provided by QUAST (). Additionally, some other tools have appeared to cover specific contexts like bacte […]
