FASTQ/A short nucleotide reads pre-processing tools
The FASTX-Toolkit is a collection of command line tools for preprocessing
short nucleotide reads in FASTA and FASTQ formats, usually produced by
Next-Generation sequencing machines. The main processing of such FASTA/FASTQ
files is mapping (aligning) the sequences to reference genomes or other
databases using specialized programs like BWA, Bowtie and many others.
However, it is sometimes more productive to preprocess the FASTA/FASTQ files
before mapping the sequences to the genome—manipulating the sequences to
produce better mapping results. The FASTX-Toolkit tools perform some of these
preprocessing tasks.
