I have several fasta files of assemblies from different samples. Is there a recommended method for merging de-novo assemblies? I have 88 assemblies and 2 of which are of seemingly high quality. The quast results are shown below for all of the assemblies. Many of the reads are short and I feel like they could be collapsed down from some of the contigs from the other assemblies. Are there recommended methods for collapsing all of the assemblies into a consensus assembly? I stumbled across
metassembler but haven't heard much about it. Any advice would greatly appreciated.
