fastxtend is an extension of FASTX-Toolkit package
It provides four commands line tools for Short-Reads FASTA/FASTQ files preprocessing:
- fastx_clean allows cleaning (adapters, N, quality) of the reads in fastq files.
- fastx_duplicatedReads estimates the duplicates rate of reads (single or pair reads).
- fastx_mergepairs perform the merging of the paired reads and give some statistics (merged size, percent of pairs merged).
- fastx_stats to display quality values distribution.
