    NCBI NOW, Lecture 7, Using BLAST for Genomic Analysis

  • Topic: Using BLAST for Genomic Analysis

    Presenter: Tom Madden

    Using FastQC to check the quality of high throughput sequence

  • FastQC is an application which reads raw sequence data from high throughput sequencers and runs a set of quality checks to produce a report which allows you to quickly assess the overall quality of your run, and to spot any potential problems or biases.

    This video demonstrates the use of FastQC to analyse some sequence data and goes through the results to explain what a good dataset looks like, and what sort of problems you might encounter.
