QUAST 5.0 is released!

We are happy to announce a long-awaited major release of QUAST! QUAST 5.0.0 includes QUAST-LG (mode for evaluating large genome assemblies) and many other new features:

  • New k-mer-based completeness and correctness metrics
  • Enhanced reference-free analysis using BUSCO assessments
  • The concept of upper bound assembly (theoretical limits on the assembly completeness and contiguity for a given genome and set of reads)

The full list of changes is here.
