Use the MEGAHIT assembler to assemble the data set at https://osf.io/frdz5/download. Then, run the quast program on it to produce some summary metrics about your assembly.


  • what is the read type for this data set?
  • what is the approximate size of the assembled genome?
  • what strategies would you use to figure out what species this genome is from?
