Hi LeonardoBio

I'm not entirely sure if I understand your question - I assume you are using PadenaUtil to assemble a set of sequences in a FASTA file. If so, you will know that when you run the application you can specify a file (which is very similar in fact to a FASTA file). For example:

PadenaUtil -k:32 -l -c:2 -o:outputfile.txt

In this case, if you look at outputfile.txt, you will see a set of contigs. There is no switch for PadenaUtil to tell you how many there are, you just have to count them (or write a simple script to do so).
