QUAST-LG is a tool for genome assembly evaluation and is an extension of the software QUAST. While QUAST is suitable for smaller genomes (e.g. bacteria), QUAST-LG is meant for larger eukaryotic genomes (e.g. mammals). This tool implements new quality metrics such as k-mer based completeness and correctness, BUSCO completeness, and theoretical limits of assembly completeness and contiguity.
