use RNA transcripts to assess assembly - parses BLAT output of transcriptome vs. genome
The output looks something like:
Percentage of transcripts with a BLAT entry (15661/15752): 0.994222955815135 Total % coverage of all positions (10303278 / 10491059): 0.982100853688841 Number of transcripts mapping to a single contig/scaffold: (14750/15661) 0.941830023625567 Average number of contigs/scaffolds per mapped transcript: 1.08715918523721
