LMAS is an automated workflow enabling the benchmarking of traditional and metagenomic prokaryotic de novo assembly software using defined mock communities.

As proof of concept, the eight bacterial genomes and four plasmids, in tripled form, of the ZymoBIOMICS Microbial Community Standards are made available to be used as reference. Simulated raw sequence data of the mock communities with evenly distributed reads, generated from the reference genomes, with and without error, were obtained with inSilicoSeq.
