Table 1 Comparison of results from different NGS assemblers

From: In silico secretome analysis approach for next generation sequencing transcriptomic data

Assembler No. of second order contigs No. of contigs Largest contig Average length N50* N90* Number of bases
MIRA [8] + CAP3 [29] 3056 25845 3620 402.36 406 253 11628536
Newbler [26]   25127 2607 407.11 409 252 10229510
  1. *N50 refers to the length of the shortest contig such that the sum of contigs of equal length or longer is at least 50% of the total assembly size. While N90 refers to the length of the shortest contig such that the sum of contigs of equal length or longer is at least 90% of the total assembly size.
