Recorded Webinar (August 2020) | FASTQ files store biological sequence and quality information and are key for downstream data analysis pipelines. Several steps are necessary during FASTQ generation to ensure optimal data analysis. This webinar is targeted at new and intermediate users including biologists intending to understand output of basic bioinformatics tools used for processing FASTQs. We will focus on BaseSpace Sequence Hub tools such as FASTQC and FASTQ toolkit*.
We will cover the following topics: What is a FASTQ file; An overview of Illumina FASTQ generation tools; FASTQ processing such as adapter trimming, masking, quality trimming, read stitching etc; and Highlight the differences between Illumina run performance metrics and output generated by third party tools such as FASTQC.

After completing this course you will have an understanding of the demultiplexing and alignment processes and program interfaces that are common to all workflows in MiSeq Reporter. You will also be able to briefly describe the utility of the supported MiSeq Reporter workflows. MiSeq Reporter is available on instruments using MiSeq Control Software v2.6 and earlier.
