I just need some suggestions regarding a current project.
I have de novo assembled a draft genome (~1Gbp in size) of a species (non reference), to check the quality of this assembly, should I compare it to a published genome of a neighbour species?
Additionally, which tools are currently best suited for that purpose? (I looked for MUMmer, Mauve, but have no prior experience in using them)
Thank you very much in advance!
