I have been reading about kmer coverage value produced by DNA assemblers such as SPAdes or velvet, however I have not understand this concept.
If i have the following SPAdes header:
cov=243, mean that 243 reads that were used to reconstruct the NODE3 contig have the exact sequence of the kmer?
How I can interpretate kmer coverage, what cov=243 mean?
