    RNA-sequencing is a high throughput sequencing technology that sequences cDNA to obtain information from a particular sample of RNA. RNA-seq has already been proven to be an important factor to research numerous incurable diseases like cancers. Like other high throughput technologies, it also produces a huge number of accurate but relatively short reads. So it remains a concerning issue for De Novo assembly tools to assemble this massive amount of short reads. Existing De Novo assembly tools to assemble RNA-seq data are developed mainly based on three different algorithms; Greedy, OLC, and Euler-path. Recent research has revealed that Euler-path approach works best for RNA-seq data. A few De Novo assembly tools are available nowadays that were developed using Euler-path approach. Most of these tools based on Euler-path can be used free of cost for non commercial purposes. However, the performance of these non-commercial usable tools varies under different criteria. Again, their performance has not been measured in all possible conditions. So, it is always a matter of concern, which tool should be used for a particular data. Main objective of this thesis work is to consider four Euler-path De Novo assembly tools available for non commercial use and find out their performance for EST data of eukaryote. Criteria of their performance would be assembly accuracy and integrity.
