Hi.

I am trying to understand how to estimate the genome size for a metagenomic dataset. As i understand it its quite difficult to accurately estimate the genome size of a metagenomic dataset (however, correct me if i am wrong). I am trying to correct my reads using Canu and it requires an estimated genome size but as i mentioned i am unsure how to do this?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
