I'm learning how to parse Illumina NGS data with Interop and Python. I've read the tutorials but still confused which function to use to get 'Run Info' stats ( For example, how to get 'instrument_name ()' and 'flowcell_id ()'. I understand that these are part of 'run_metrics' class but not sure how to access them correctly.

run_folder = r"/path/to/run/folder"
from interop import py_interop_run_metrics, py_interop_run, py_interop_summary

run_metrics = py_interop_run_metrics.run_metrics()
valid_to_load = py_interop_run.uchar_vector(py_interop_run.MetricCount, 0)
run_folder =, valid_to_load)
instrument_name = run_metrics.instrument_name()
print "instrument name: ", instrument_name

Thanks for your help in advance.

Thanks, that is very helpful. I just need to understand how to get the 'total yield' from that file.
