Inspector is a tool for assembly evaluation with long read data. The input includes a contig file, long reads (PacBio CLR, PacBio HiFi, Oxford Nanopore, or mixed platform), and a reference genome (optional). The output includes A summary report, read-to-contig alignment file, a list of structrual errors and small-scale errors.
