BUSCO assesses genome assembly and annotation completeness with Benchmarking Universal Single-Copy Orthologs.
BUSCO v2 provides quantitative measures for the assessment of genome assembly, gene set, and transcriptome completeness, based on evolutionarily-informed expectations of gene content from near-universal single-copy orthologs selected from OrthoDB v9.
The MultiQC module parses the
short_summary_[samplename].txt files and
plots the proportion of BUSCO types found. MultiQC has been tested with
output from BUSCO v1.22 - v2.
