Thanks for your reply Daniel. That's right... I did not even think about using the boxplot tool to find how much to trim the ends. My reads all have the same length, but still, is seems more natural to only trim as much as needed and no more. For example, I have some reads that are completely low quality and should entirely trimmed/removed, whereas some might of good quality over almost all their length. It's probaby better to use a short sliding window (of, say, 5 bp) and trim the ends until the window has no more than, say zero low quality base pairs. So, the following sequence would be converted from: xxxoxooooooxxooooooxoxxx to: ooooooxxoooooo Florent

Hi all, I have a question regarding the trimming length. I would like to trim my the last part 36 bp from my 76 bp reads, then I can compare the result between 36 bp (first part of 76bp) and 76 bp (the whole part). So here I want to ask if I can download the trimed reads from Galaxy. Many thanks!

Hi Florent, Thanks very much for the comments. A sliding window sounds like an excellent approach: allow users to specify the window size, step size, an aggregation action to perform on the window (min, max, sum, mean, etc ), a comparison method (<,<=, ==, etc) and a threshold quality value; allowing users to specify the ends (both or only one or the other) to trim would also likely be useful. Would it also be desirable to allow specifying a number of quality scores that can be excluded from the aggregation action (the zero low quality base pairs in your example)? A window size of 1 would handle the simple case of only trimming the very ends while allowing the user to configure more complex windowing schemes. Thoughts? Thanks, Dan

That sounds perfect Daniel. Advanced options for advanced users, and safe defaults for everyone else will do it. Florent

Hi Florent, I've added a tool which will do this to the repository. It is currently available on the test server and will be on the main server next week. Thanks, Dan
