As far I know, before assembly of a genome, all k-mers from read should be counted.
- But after that, how the genome assembly be done?
- Is there any other thing needed along with k-mer counts?
- How the standard value of k is determined for a particular genome assembly? or is it fixed for all kind of assembly?
I just want to know the basic concept that how this actually been done. Explanation with flow char or algorithm is much more appreciated.
I went through some similar question, but those did not help me too much.
