    In the following URL the is a graph relating Q score (Sanger and Solexa) with p-value: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FASTQ_format
    Basically, I think anything above a Q (solexa) score of 20 is very acceptable. From 20-13 the probability begins to vary much more. Around a Q score of 13 it seems that there is a 0.05 chance of a bad call.

    I'm not sure what exactly TopHat would do in this situation.

    You could try converting your reads from the Illumina 1.3+ FASTQ file format (aka phred64) to a Sanger FASTQ file (aka phred33).

    There are lots of tools to do this conversion (search the forum), I'm biased but would suggest EMBOSS seqret for a command line tool, or for a script based solution BioPython (use function Bio.SeqIO.convert for this) or BioPerl etc.

    Considering Quality scores of reads when aligning

    I have reads with quality scale on phred64. I get an error when using --solexa1.3-quals option in tophat which is a known error (Error: could not execute prep_reads)

    So, since I can't use this option, does it mean my reads get aligned without the quality scores being taken into consideration by bowtie?

    Finally, how does one decide what is a good quality score? What if there are really bad quality reads in the seed region (beginning of the read) but good ones towards the end giving it a high quality score. In this case, I would like to throw this read .

    Any one has any thoughts on threshold used?

    Recent Advances in Sequencing Analysis Tools
    by seqadmin


    The sequencing world is rapidly changing due to declining costs, enhanced accuracies, and the advent of newer, cutting-edge instruments. Equally important to these developments are improvements in sequencing analysis, a process that converts vast amounts of raw data into a comprehensible and meaningful form. This complex task requires expertise and the right analysis tools. In this article, we highlight the progress and innovation in sequencing analysis by reviewing several of the...
