NAME

       flexbar - flexible barcode and adapter removal for sequencing platforms

SYNOPSIS

       flexbar -r reads [-t target] [-b barcodes] [-a adapters] [options]

DESCRIPTION

       Flexbar   preprocesses  high-throughput  sequencing  data  efficiently.  It  demultiplexes
       barcoded runs and removes adapter sequences. Moreover, trimming and filtering features are
       provided.   Flexbar   increases  mapping  rates  and  improves  genome  and  transcriptome
       assemblies. It supports next-generation sequencing data in fasta/q  and  csfasta/q  format
       from Illumina, Roche 454, and the SOLiD platform.

       Parameter  names  changed  in  Flexbar.  Please review scripts. The recent months, default
       settings were optimised, several bugs were fixed and various improvements were made,  e.g.
       revamped  command-line  interface,  new  trimming  modes  as well as lower time and memory
       requirements.

       -bo, --barcode-min-overlap NUM

              Minimum overlap of barcode and read. Default: barcode length.

       -bt, --barcode-threshold NUM

              Allowed mismatches and gaps per 10 bases overlap. Default: 1.0.

       -bu, --barcode-unassigned

              Trim given number of bases on 5' read end before detection.

       -y, --pre-trim-right NUM

              Trim specified number of bases on 3' end prior to detection.

       -q, --pre-trim-phred NUM

              Trim 3' end until specified or higher quality reached.

       -k, --post-trim-length NUM

              Trim to specified read length from 3' end after removal.

       -m, --min-read-length NUM

              Output selection:

       -o, --fasta-output

              Prefer non-quality formats fasta and csfasta for output.
