FastQ toolkit

FASTQ format Is a text-based format For storing both a biological sequence (usually nucleotide sequence) And its corresponding quality scores. Both the sequence letter And quality score are Each encoded With a Single ASCII character For brevity. It was originally developed at the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute To bundle a FASTA formatted sequence And its quality data, but has recently become the de facto standard For storing the output Of high-throughput sequencing instruments such As the Illumina Genome Analyzer.

In FASTQ files, quality scores are encoded into a compact form, which uses only 1 byte per quality value. In this encoding, the quality score is represented as the character with an ASCII code equal to its value + 33.
