    if you look into your sig2.txt files I believe that you can see the raw scores which I guess you can translate into quality.
    In every line you have first the lane number, then tile & coordinates, and after that comes the raw data with scores from each imaging round (in the order A, C, G, & T).
    If you look into the prb.txt file you will get the analysis score that the Solexa software calculated. Scores range from -40 to 40 again in the order as above.

    If you are looking to get an overview of the general scores instead of looking at selected ones individually... I dont know, unfortunatly.

    Hope that helps!
    Thanks Stegger,

    I AM looking to getting an overview of of SOLEXA read qualities. I would like to be able to discern the qualities of those reads that are aligning with my reference using MAQ.

    some of your sequences are artifacts of poor image quality, flowcell imperfections etc. in which case you need to use X,Y co-ordinates as part of your filtering - and/or cross check the images.

    The analysis scores are a good start. Unfortunately, they won't show you the whole story and you might need to do some further magic.

    For example, I've seen bacterial projects where a low single digit percent of the reads were all "AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA..." with quality analysis scores of 40 (best score). Less frequently were reads all C, G or T. As variation thereof, there were reads good up to a certain point and then incorporating only a single type of bases ... all at good quality.

    The thing is: the bacteria I worked on do not contain this sequences! These are sequencing artefacts which are difficult to asses only with analysis scores.

    So, for bacteria I also filter out reads that are all A, C, G, T. Then again, eukaryotesmight have poly-A / poly-T that are this long ... it's abit of a problem.

    Assess the quality of solexa reads

    Hello,

    How can you assess the quality of solexa reads?

    Thanks,

    Best Practices for Single-Cell Sequencing Analysis
    by seqadmin



    While isolating and preparing single cells for sequencing was historically the bottleneck, recent technological advancements have shifted the challenge to data analysis. This highlights the rapidly evolving nature of single-cell sequencing. The inherent complexity of single-cell analysis has intensified with the surge in data volume and the incorporation of diverse and more complex datasets. This article explores the challenges in analysis, examines common pitfalls, offers...
