Comparison of pseudo-read tools by N50 and misassembled reads length. Results are shown for Konnector v2.0 and three other pseudo-read-generating tools across E. coli (synthetic), S. cerevisiae, and C. elegans sequencing data sets. The "misassembled reads length" on the x-axis of each plot denotes the sum length of all pseudo-reads reported as misassembled by QUAST. MaSuRCA performs best on the synthetic E. coli data set, producing the highest N50 and creating no misassemblies. However, on the experimental S. cerevisiae and C. elegans data sets, Konnector v2.0 outperforms the other tools in terms of both N50 and misassembled sequence, for a range of k-mer lengths.
