Unusual FASTQ file
I'm master student in bioinformatics field. I need some help plz. I downloaded the fastq file from GEO, but the format I think it's different. I wanna to know what is this..
Why the read is like this ?? I know it should contains (ATGC) not (T2200330123010111..03100022.....023..02.....011022.)
here is the format
You have colorspace reads! Here's an old tutorial on converting those: Transforming And Manipulating Color Space Reads
There's a script mentioned in this tutorial which does this transformation for you.
I haven't seen those reads in years so I wonder whether they'll be useful for your analysis; it might be really old data. Can you even still buy Solid sequencers?!?
