Quality Assessment Tool for Genome Assemblies by CAB


QUAST is an open-source project, you can browse, download or contribute to the source code of both the webserver and its command-line engine at GitHub.

For installing the command-line version of QUAST (works on Linux and macOS), we recommend using common package managers:

Conda: conda install -c bioconda quast
Homebrew (Brewsci/bio): brew install quast
PyPI: pip install quast

You may also download the latest and older QUAST releases from SourceForge (latest, all versions) or GitHub (latest, all versions). Installation is pretty straightforward and described in the manual.

We distribute relatively stable but not thoroughly tested pre-release versions at GitHub only (check out the latest one here). With caution, you may also clone and use the cutting-edge developers’ version from GitHub:
git clone git@github.com:ablab/quast.git
