Importing FASTQ files and linked database entry information (metagenomics)

This tutorial illustrates how to import multiplex identifier information from an Excel file, and how to import and link fastq files to these entries. This tutorial also illustrates how to obtain a quick overview of the basic statistics on read quality and read length, and how predefined charts are used to get a more indetailed view on these characteristics.

Sequence read sets

A sequence read set is designed to hold large sets of short reads generated by next generation sequencing (NGS). Base sequences and their associated quality scores are stored for single-end and paired-end reads, originating from various high-throughput pyrosequencing platforms such as Roche 454, Illumina Solexa, Ion Torrent, etc.

Sequence read set data (metagenomics)
This data set contains a FASTQ file with V2 16S rRNA sequence reads that were generated by a Roche 454 GS FLX pyrosequencer and an Excel file with the linked sample barcode information.
