We convert the qseq output files from base calling into fastq, eliminating running GERALD and ELAND entirely. The output directory structure may be different depending on your version of the Illumina pipeline but with 1.6.0, the on-machine base caller will output qseq files in:
and the offline base caller (OLB) in:
The conversion from qseq to fastq is fairly straightforward. Here is a python script that produces fastq files from these qseq directories.
I need 2 or 3 files in Illumina Export Format to test a software function, (size does not matter).
I've been looking through all over the web and have not been able to find them. (I understand SRA don't use it).
I tried to find CASAVA old versions in order to build my own files, but the software is not available anymore.
Could anyone provide a couple of files, a link or suggest a repository ?
Thank you very much, ....
