Why Velvet and ABySS, the de Bruijn graph assemblers produce greater number of contigs than any other assembler? Ideally, a good assembler should generate less number of contigs.

Some assemblers are more 'conservative' than others when it comes to merging small contigs into larger contigs, so will give an assembly with a larger number of contigs.
