Red face What is the expected number of cDNAs/contigs?


For a vertebrate, what is the expected number of cDNAs/contigs from a de novo assembly of RNA-Seq data, after the duplicates are removed?

Is there a consensus, or a rule of thumb for the minimum contig length?

You could use a related genome, that is reasonably finished, to make a guesstimate ( Because of alternate splicing possibilities it would be difficult to come up with an "expected number" for cDNA.

contig length, contig number, contig size, de novo
