A Shiny Application for Quality Control, Filtering and Trimming of FASTQ Files

Bioconductor version: Release (3.17)

An interactive web application for quality control, filtering and trimming of FASTQ files. This user-friendly tool combines a pipeline for data processing based on Biostrings and ShortRead infrastructure, with a cutting-edge visual environment. Single-Read and Paired-End files can be locally processed. Diagnostic interactive plots (CG content, per-base sequence quality, etc.) are provided for both the input and output files.
