Hello all. I have been assembling a bacterial genome with a number of different assemblers. When looking for the optimum kmer value, I have determined it to be around 190-200 using kmer optimizers based on the velvet assembler. Now when I run the assembly in SPAdes, I get the best assembly at it's maximum kmer value of 127. However, from the evidence I have from the other kmer optimizer, I want to try a SPAdes assembly using kmer = 199.
Is there a way how to increase the limit of kmer size in SPAdes? I know there is a way in velvet.
