I want to know how we can check the quality of the genomes present at the NCBI.
I'm interested to check the following: N50, L50, fine consistency, genome contamination, coarse consistency.
I have a few questions w.r.t this:
- As I was checking a few tools to do the same as QUAST, the input to this program is the contig data for the sequenced genome. Is it is necessary to have contig data to check the quality? Can't we do it just only with the genomes files provided by the NCBI?
- Where I can find the contig data for the genomes present at the NCBI?
- What other tools I can use to check the quality of the genomes ass I'm specifically looking for Viral genome?
