    How does trimq work in BBDuk?

    I have recently discovered BBTools and find it very intuitive use. However, as I am pretty new to processing raw sequence data, I haven't got my head around exactly how the quality trimming works in BBDuk. On the BBtools FAQs it states that trimq=10 will "... will quality-trim to Q10 using the Phred algorithm". However, I am unsure what this exactly means - does this trim reads with phred scores of 10 and below?

    Specifically, what I noticed is that when I increase the trimq parameter (up to a point, e.g., at trimq=40 I end up with no reads) I increase the number of reads mapped to a reference genome. My understanding of this observation is that by setting a higher threshold for quality trimming, the probability of a read mapping to a reference genome increases. Is that the correct interpretation?

    If it's helpful the reads are paired-end generated on Illumina MiSeq platform.

    Any insight would be gratefully received!

    Multiomics Techniques Advancing Disease Research
    by seqadmin


    New and advanced multiomics tools and technologies have opened new avenues of research and markedly enhanced various disciplines such as disease research and precision medicine1. The practice of merging diverse data from various ‘omes increasingly provides a more holistic understanding of biological systems. As Maddison Masaeli, Co-Founder and CEO at Deepcell, aptly noted, “You can't explain biology in its complex form with one modality.”
