Mercury is a tool for validating genomes assembled using long read sequencing. The algorithm uses k-mer to evaluate base accuracy and completeness of a genome by comparing the de novo assembled genome with high accuracy reads that are not used in the assembly. The program does not require another reference assembly for its evaluation. It is able to evaluate the haplotype-specific accuracy, completeness, phase block continuity and switch errors in trio binned assemblies.
