I noticed Galaxy could parse qual file and output kinds of stats,
which is said to be based on fastx toolkit. Yet fastx_quality_stats in
fastx toolkit doesn't work on qual file of solid. Anyone has idea
about the trick? Thanks.
In the Galaxy UI, the tool "NGS: QC and manipulation -> Convert SOLiD
output to fastq" is to be used before running "Compute quality
statistics for SOLiD data". You could also run this conversion tool
command line, if that is how you are running fastx_quality_stats.
Hopefully this helps,
