Table 2 Accuracy of initial and assisted assemblies, estimated using the Assembly proximity test*

From: Assisted assembly: how to improve a de novo genome assembly by using related species

  1 kb 2 kb 6 kb 10 kb 20 kb 60 kb 100 kb
Initial draft 97.9% 97.5% 97.4% 97.1% 96.2% 95.3% 94.4%
Assisted 98.2% 98.1% 98.1% 98.0% 98.0% 97.9% 97.9%
  1. *Random paired k-mers were selected from the 2× canine assemblies and then matched against the high quality draft assembly. The table shows the success rate for various values of d (the distance between the pairs).
