Yak is initially developed for two specific use cases: 1) to robustly estimate the base accuracy of CCS reads and assembly contigs, and 2) to investigate the systematic error rate of CCS reads. It achieves the goals by comparing sequences to the k-mer spectrum of short reads or by comparing spectra. No reference genome or truth data is needed.
