fastx-toolkit 0.0.14 Tools for FASTA/FASTQ file preprocessing

The FASTX-Toolkit is a collection of command line tools for Short-Reads FASTA/FASTQ files preprocessing.

Next-Generation sequencing machines usually produce FASTA or FASTQ files, containing multiple short-reads sequences. The main processing of such FASTA/FASTQ files is mapping the sequences to reference genomes. However, it is sometimes more productive to preprocess the files before mapping the sequences to the genome---manipulating the sequences to produce better mapping results. The FASTX-Toolkit tools perform some of these preprocessing tasks.
