Table 1 Comparative assembly statistics of preliminary assemblies generated using CLC-GWB, Velvet and SOAPdenovo

From: Genome sequence of Phormia regina Meigen (Diptera: Calliphoridae): implications for medical, veterinary and forensic research

Assembler Sex Optimal kmer (bp) # contigs N50 (bp) % readsa
CLC-GWB Female 60 251,115 3684 96.0
Male 60 306,273 2487 93.5
Velvet Female 75 317,916 1095 47.0
Male 75 310,045 956 37.9
SOAPdenovo Female 75 1,953,762 451 68.8
Male 75 2,010,365 351 58.6
  1. For each assembly pipeline, different kmers were used to generate the optimal assembly, and the main metric for determining quality of assembly was the combination of the number of contigs and the N50
  2. a% reads = the number of reads that mapped to each assembled genome
