how to separate barcode libraries from csfasta and qual file
anyone knows about how to do that?

No need to do so. The libraries are already extracted by the machine, at least on the SOLiD 4 and SOLiD 3.

really?I just got one csfasta and qual file including 8 libraries from the core facility. If so, I will ask them tomorrow.

Yes, ask them. Let us know what they say. Since the SOLiD has separate runs for the barcode, the F3 and the F5/R3 then these should separate into three different files and into different samples. We get (and give to our customers) files that are named like:



Plus associated qual and stats files; e.g.,


Note that there are three .csfasta files per sample.

It is possible to merge all data from the samples into one file. But, at the risk of critiquing another core facility, why do so?

I'm having the same problem. I have four barcoded samples, but only got one csfasta and qual files. Did the ppl got the solution for the problem from ABI?
