If you happen to be working abi chromatogram files you can use perl's Bio::Trace::ABIF (c.f. CPAN) to do this directly easily without need for SeqWIthQUality objects.

Subject: [Bioperl-l] Working with SeqWithQuality


I have fasta files and separate quality fasta files.  I understand all about constructing a SeqWithQuality object, that's the easy bit, but are there no functions for actually manipulating the sequence based on the quality values?  For example, trimming the ends where a moving window average quality does not go above a certain value, or masking areas with low quality?
