Classes in the FASTQ Portion of Library
||Class used for reading/validating a fastq file.|
||Wrapper around an array that has one index per base and an extra index for a total count of all bases. This class is used to keep a count of the number of times each index has occurred. It can print a percentage of the occurrence of each base against the total number of bases.|
||Class that tracks the composition of base by read location.|
||Status for FastQ operations.|
When a sequence is read, error messages for the first maxReportedErrors are output for failed Validation Criteria. For Example:
ERROR on Line 25: The sequence identifier line was too short. ERROR on Line 29: First line of a sequence does not begin wtih @ ERROR on Line 33: No Sequence Identifier specified before the comment.
The FastQValidator was built using the FastQFile class. More details on that program are at the supplied link.
