    FASTQ Processing Tools for Data Analysis

    Presenter: Alice Blackshear

    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 cover the following topics:
    - What is a FASTQ file
    - Overview of Illumina FASTQ generation tools
    - FASTQ processing such as adapter trimming, masking, quality trimming, read stitching etc
    - How to best use FASTQC and FASTQ toolkit BaseSpace Lab apps on BaseSpace Sequence Hub*
    - Highlight the differences between Illumina run performance metrics and output generated by third party tools such as FASTQC.
