  • Bcl2Fastq v2+: Introduction

    Recorded Webinar (April 2019) | Bcl2Fastq is a Linux-based software that converts base call files generated from an Illumina sequencing run to FASTQ files as well as demultiplex samples. This webinar focuses on Bcl2fastq v2+ and is targeted for new to intermediate users who are interested in the configurable options that this command line program allows. We will cover the following topics: requirements to run Bcl2Fastq, command line basics, commonly used options, frequently asked ‘How To….’ questions.


  • How Do I Prepare for My Illumina Instrument Delivery?

    In this video, an Illumina Field Applications Scientist discusses what to expect during the pre-installation, shipping, and delivery stages. We’ll highlight important steps in the process and introduce you to available resources. Note that, depending on your region, the steps shown in this video may not apply to the iSeq 100 system.
