I am completely new to this field and have no experience in bioinformatics . We have recently sequenced a metavirome using illumina miseq platform (2x300). All the reads were assembled using Spades genome assembler available on illumina basespace using default settings. The output contigs had filenames like 6048_NODE_27_LENGTH_43376_COV_6.27809_ID_53
In this example what does LENGTH_43376_COV_6.27809 mean
From what I understood cov indicates kmer coverage can this information be used to calculate the actual contig coverage ?
