Talk:FASTQ sequence format

From BioPerl
Jump to: navigation, search

This description seems more like the qual format than what I read elsewhere about fastq.

fastq is a combined sequence and quality score file. The numeric quality scores are also binary/ascii encoded to save on size.

The POD for Bio::SeqIO::FASTQ has the correct description. This entry should be updated.

Agreed, but the format unfortunately isn't well-documented outside of the bit in our docs. --Chris Fields 12:04, 24 July 2007 (EDT)
