    Determining quality of genome assembly

    Hi! I apologize for this really basic question, as I am new to the field.

    I am looking for homologous genes in various species using BLAST. The genome sequences of these species are deposited in NCBI's WGS database. NCBI’s webpage includes the global statistics for each WGS project and it indicates the assembly level (scaffold, contig, etc.). It also has the assembly statistics (number of contigs, N50, L50, etc) and (if available) the genome coverage. With these data, can I determine if the genome is very fragmented or not? Can some of these parameters be used to evaluate the genome assembly’s "quality" based on the assembly statistics, especially if there is more than one genome assembly for the same species?

    I understand that quality is a relative term and that there are several options for assessing genome assemblies (QUAST, BUSCO, etc.) but I am not confident on how to use those tools. I am at a loss of where to start, so any information will be greatly appreciated!

    Multiomics Techniques Advancing Disease Research
    by seqadmin


    New and advanced multiomics tools and technologies have opened new avenues of research and markedly enhanced various disciplines such as disease research and precision medicine1. The practice of merging diverse data from various ‘omes increasingly provides a more holistic understanding of biological systems. As Maddison Masaeli, Co-Founder and CEO at Deepcell, aptly noted, “You can't explain biology in its complex form with one modality.”

    A major leap in the field has
