An ultra-fast all-in-one FASTQ preprocessor


The Fastp module parses results generated by Fastp. Fastp can simply go through all fastq files in a folder and perform a series of quality control and filtering. Quality control and reporting are displayed both before and after filtering, allowing for a clear depiction of the consequences of the filtering process. Notably, the latter can be conducted on a variety of parameters including quality scores, length, as well as the presence of adapters, polyG, or polyX tailing.

By default, the module generates the sample names based on the input FastQ file names in the command line used by fastp. If you prefer, you can tell the module to use the filenames as sample names instead. To do so, use the following config option:

  s_name_filenames: true
