public class FastqReader
- extends Object
FASTQ format file reader.
FASTQ Format Specification: http://maq.sourceforge.net/fastq.shtml
FASTQ format stores sequences and Phred qualities in a single file. It is concise and compact. FASTQ is first widely
used in the Sanger Institute and therefore we usually take the Sanger specification and the standard FASTQ format, or
simply FASTQ format. Although Solexa/Illumina read file looks pretty much like FASTQ, they are different in that the
qualities are scaled differently. In the quality string, if you can see a character with its ASCII code higher than
90, probably your file is in the Solexa/Illumina format.
