A week ago I made another post regarding an error I was getting while I was trying to run BBDuk on a number of fastq files. In that case, there were lines that miss the "+" char.
After looking a bit more I found the following:
Not only there are records that miss the "+" char but also records that miss the "@" char. And moreover there are also mismatches in the lengths of sequence and quality values for specific records.
I assume that maybe all these are fixable with a script but my question is, can we trust these files? Is it worth spending time and effort to fix them?
Thanking you in advance!
