Default Coverage peak values meta-velvetg


I have a metagenomic dataset composed by ~300 Million pair end reads (HiSeq) 150 bp read length and ~380 average fragment size.

I'm trying to run meta-velvet to assemble metagenomes. After choosing a kmer size of either 51 or 75 I see no difference between outputs from velvetg and meta-velvetg.

Furthermore, after running, I end up with a -1 coverage peak value for both velvetg and meta-velvetg and the same very low N50 (~399). Strangely, that does not happen with all my samples.

Can anybody give me some clues as to what's going on here?

I'd really appreciate it
