TransRate: reference free quality assessment of de novo transcriptome assemblies.
TransRate is a tool for reference-free quality assessment of de novo transcriptome assemblies. Using only the sequenced reads and the assembly as input, we show multiple common artifacts of de novo transcriptome assembly can be readily detected. These include chimeras, structural errors, incomplete assembly and base errors. TransRate evaluates these errors to produce a diagnostic quality score for each contig and these contig scores are integrated to evaluate whole assemblies. Thus TransRate ...Expand abstract
