Hi, I just got a genome assembly (de novo), and I want to estimate the genome size. According to some published papers, it can be done using the k-mer coverage. But I am not quite following this one: How to cut the genome to chosen K-mer ? And how to summary the K-mer abundance and plot a Poisson distribution, just like in the papers?
Could anybody provide any software name,or Perl module, or even some Pseudo-code? Thanks for your help!
