Table 7 Comparison of main features with other tools for quality assessment of de novo assembly

From: SQUAT: a Sequencing Quality Assessment Tool for data quality assessments of genome assemblies

Feature\Tools SQUAT QUAST REAPR BUSCO
Categorization of read-to-assembly mapping relationship    
Distributions of alignment scores, mismatch ratios, and clip ratios of read mapping results    
Evaluation of assembly quality by identification of poorly/properly mapped reads of different types    
Comprehensive metrics for evaluating assembly contiguity. Nx-like plots and cumulative plots    
Comparison of multiple assemblies    
Identification of scaffolding error by fragment coverage distribution    
Evaluation of assembly completeness by single-copy orthologues    
Built-in light-weight assessment of read quality by categorizing reads into poor−/medium−/high- quality groups
