New Quality Control Program Optimized for Long Read Nucleotide Sequencing

Contributed by Cory Schlesener, B.S. DNA sequencing, in a high throughput process, generates errors in the reads, such as low confidence nucleotide based calling. Quality control is needed to evaluate the quality of the sequencing output and identify undesired features. The program FastQC (https://www.bioinformatics.babraham.ac.uk/projects/fastqc) has become one of the most popular tools for assessing quality […]
