From http://biostar.stackexchange.com/questions/1389/how-to-generate-a-consensus-fasta-sequence-from-sam-tools-pileup We use awk and perl to get fasta by

awk '/^@chr1$/,/^+$/' consensus.fastq | perl -pe "s/@/>/ ; s/\\+//" > chr1.fasta

The sample data

Now I want to extract the qual for each chromosome. But the qual score for each chromosome all beginning with "+", how can I extract them?

Thanks.

It quality doesn't wrap lines can't you just grep for "+"?

Here is quick and extremely dirty python script to pull out fastq quality not making assumptions about line wrapping:

import sys

inFile = open(sys.argv[1],'r')

header = ''
qual = ''

seqs = False
quals = False
for line in inFile:
    if line[0] == "@":
        if header != '':
            print ">" + header
            print qual
        header = line[1:].strip()
        quals = False
        qual = ''
    elif line[0] == "+":
        quals = True
    else:
        if quals:
            qual += line.strip()

print ">" + header
print qual

Save as yourName.py and run it by: python yourName.py yourFile.fastq > output.quals

edit * There was a mistake in the code where the qual variable wasn't being reset.

edit **

Here is the script to get just one entry:

import sys

inFile = open(sys.argv[1],'r')
queryHeader = sys.argv[2]

header = ''
qual = ''

seqs = False
quals = False
for line in inFile:
    if line[0] == "@":
        if header != '':
            if header == queryHeader:
                print ">" + header
                print qual
                sys.exit()
        header = line[1:].strip()
        quals = False
        qual = ''
    elif line[0] == "+":
        quals = True
    else:
        if quals:
            qual += line.strip()

print ">" + header
print qual

Save it as yourName.py. Use it by: python yourName.py yourFile.fastq "entry name"

My fastq file is 6GB, I got the quals file is more than 12GB. Is it right?

No, it is 37.8GB. Could you please double check your code?

updated: If I only want to get qual for chromosome 1, how to change code?

I've added the code to just get one entry.

I've added the scrip for getting just one entry. Make sure you typed the name of the entry correctly with quotes if there are spacing. If you didn't type it correctly, it will just give you the last entry.

line[0] can be '+' for one of the qual lines if the phred33 score is 10. So maybe this code may break in some cases.

0 1 2 3 4 01234567890123456789012345678901234567890 !"#$%&'()*+,-./0123456789:;<=>?@ABCDEFGHI

Also @ is ASCII 64 which is 64 - 33 = PHRED Q 31. The quality line can contain and begin with both + and @.
