KAT provides a suite of tools that, through the use of k-mer counts, help the user address or identify issues such as determining sequencing completeness for assembly, assessing sequencing bias, identifying contaminants, validating genomic assemblies and filtering content. KAT is geared primarily to work with high-coverage genomic reads from Illumina devices, although can work with any fasta or fastq sequence file.
Version 2.3.4. Freely available for every user.
Initialize module with command:
module add kat-2.3.4
