Exclamation Miseq de novo assembly : Ambigous base pairs (NNs) in the contigs


I am using MiSeq paired-end reads (250X) coverage ..quality trimmed ..for de novo assembly using abyss ..

In the assembly (non-scaffolded file) I am getting streches of "NNNs" which I guess could represent

Ambigous reads

I want to check if :

Error correction softwares can be used to avoid this? Saying this I have read that most of the assemblers already have this step incorporated in them..

Can anyone put more light on their experience assembing "MiSeq" data and getting the above problems?

I think it is helpful for others to comment with a bit more information, for example species, genome size etc. The following link seems to discuss something along your problem:!ms...Y/1NkZIDO6rx0J
