I have a 86Mbp plant genome. It was assembled with very high coverage and some mate pair info for scaffolding.
After the process was finished, I ended up with 50Mbp accumulated contig size.
Someone has an idea why it is so much less? In general contigs should accumulate to a size high then the genome. Could it be caused by diploidy?
Or am I completly wrong?
