I have the reads in a .fasta file for a bacterial strain. I was able to assemble these reads into contigs and determine the size (bp) and GC% of all this information.
Does this size and GC% represent chromosome and plasmid parts combined? If so, how do I separate chromosome information and plasmid information?
I would like to determine whether or not this .fasta file contains plasmid(s), or if it is entirely chromosome data. If plamids are present, I would like to know the number and each of their size (bp) and GC%. How can this be achieved?
Thank you for any guidance you may provide.
