FastQC v0.11.1 is the first release for a long time and is a major update to the package. This release adds some significant new features to the program which will hopefully make it more useful.

The major new features in this release are:

  • Added configurable warn/fail thresholds for all modules
  • Allow modules to be selectively turned off
  • Added a per-tile quality plot for Illumina libraries
  • Added an adapter content plot
  • Improved the duplication plot
  • Improved the Kmer module
  • Used embedded graphics in the HTML output so you can distribute a single file
  • Added the ability to read data from stdin
  • Changed how base grouping works to better accommodate long reads
  • Dropped support for Solexa64 format (NB not Phred 64 which is still supported)

This is great news. The duplication plot was one of my pet peeves.

For the help file I would recommend to define with a formula what duplication actually means. I found out the hard way that different interpretations may lead to radically different results:
