Well, figured it out - was a corrupted file from the download!

Wood Frog Genome - 6 Gbp

Got it working, but it barfs as it wants to fo a 30x coverage and from the RAW reads, it comes up a few thousand short. Would the SEED COVERAGE parameter (in the Advanced tab) be the one I would want to change? From say 30 to 25? (Just to get a rough assembly?) I'm waiting on HiSeq data to do a combined ONT + Pac Bio + HiSeq assembly in CANU.
