Filter reads for length


Filters reads based on length.


This tool utilizes the PRINSEQ package. The filtering is calculated with PRINSEQ options -max_len and -min_len.
You should define the acceptable length range with parameters Maximum length and Minimum length.


The reads that pass the length filtering condition are saved to file called accepted.fastq or accepted.fasta. You can also choose to store the reads that are filtered out to a separate file (rejected.fastq or rejected.fasta). You can also print out a log file that contains information about the filtering task and statistics about how many reads were accepted and rejected.


This tool is based on the PRINSEQ package.
