Import high throughput sequencing data

This video shows how to import sequence reads from high-throughput sequencers in a BioNumerics Seven database. The tutorial is based on an Illumina paired-end data set formatted as FASTQ files, but the same principles apply for sequence read sets generated by other next-generation sequencers such as Roche 454 or IonTorrent.

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.
