Ea-utils provides a set of command-line tools for processing biological
sequencing data, barcode demultiplexing, adapter trimming, etc.
Primarily written to support an Illumina based pipeline - but should work with
any FASTQs.
Main Tools are:
* fastq-mcf
Scans a sequence file for adapters, and, based on a log-scaled threshold,
determines a set of clipping parameters and performs clipping. Also does
skewing detection and quality filtering.
* fastq-multx
Demultiplexes a fastq. Capable of auto-determining barcode id's based on a
master set fields. Keeps multiple reads in-sync during demultiplexing. Can
verify that the reads are in-sync as well, and fail if they're not.
* fastq-join
Similar to audy's stitch program, but in C, more efficient and supports some
automatic benchmarking and tuning. It uses the same "squared distance for
anchored alignment" as other tools.
* varcall
Takes a pileup and calculates variants in a more easily parameterized manner
than some other tools.
