Element Biosciences

The Element Bio importer is designed to import fastq (.fastq/.fq) files generated by Element Biosciences sequencing technology. Uncompressed files as well as files compressed using gzip (.gz), zip (.zip) or bzip2 (.bz2) can be provided as input. Quality scores are expected to be in the NCBI/Sanger format, see Quality scores in the Illumina platform. The importer processes UMI information from the fastq read headers, see General notes on UMIs.

To launch the Element Bio importer, go to:

        Import (Image Next_Folder_16_n_p) | Other NGS Reads (Image color_ngs_import_16_n_p) | Element Bio (Image color_ngs_import_16_n_p).

This opens a dialog where files can be selected and import options specified (figure 7.12).
