The Illumina sample sheets are fairly simple but also very loose in their specifications.

The good news is that it is fairly simple to write scripts that operate on the file, but also that it is unlikely to have generic tools that could properly process every sheet.

You best option is to either write your own scripts or post requests for specific needs that you to have.

Thanks @Istvan, I have a script which converts samplesheet csv file to import to mysql db. But was wondering if any tool already available and how our community deals with plenty of samplesheets.
