Welcome to project Solid_XSQ_converter

The Solid_XSQ_converter tool converts Solid XSQ files to normal Sanger CS fastq or to BWA 0.5.9 specific CS fastq dialect files.

This tool is able to convert XSQ files comparatively fast by using the native HDF5 C++ libraries, OO wrapped by HDF5 Java library plus a minimal amount of java code written by myself to process the XSQ file.

Quality Assurance

Quality of the output has been checked by diffing the CSFastQ output from this tool to the CSFastQ output of other tools. Please still compare the output of this tool to the output of your previous conversion tool to make sure the output is also correct in your environment / setup. A few Linux command to do this are provided in a text document on the download page.

Developed by Wim Spee from the Hubrecht Cuppen group.
