i’m having a problem parsing my fresh of the presses fastq files…

it comes back with an error saying the read length is 100 characters and the quality is 106 characters? any ideas what could make this happen?

these are paired end reads that are already assembled.

the 6bp discrepancy seems to show up in many of my sequences… I wonder if it has something to do with my 6bp id tag. the binning was done by the sequencing folks. I’m waiting for an email.

Yeah that sounds about right - can they leave the barcode on the sequences or just give you a sff file?
