Checks a FASTQ file for common errors.
The tool does some simple tests to validate a FASTQC file:
Please note that the tool is not guaranteed to find all errors. It does not, for example, check for non-permitted characters in sequences and quality values. It is intended to be a simple and relatively fast tool to spot some common problems that can occur in file transfer or manipulation.
For more in-depth analysis use one the more comprehensive quality checking tools such as "Read quality with FastQC".
A log file with details of any found problems is generated for each FASTQ file. Log files for files with no problems are named *_PASS.log. If any of the tests fails, the file is named *_FAIL.log.
