Default Quality Control on Local Machine/Server


I have done all the merging of the fastq files on the server, so all the files are on the server.

However, my fastQC is installed locally. Is there a way to do QC on the server? or must I transfer all the files back locally to do QC?

Thank you

FastQC will run fine on a unix server (long as java is available). You would need a X11 client on your local machine to project the GUI back to your desktop unless you have console access on the server.

On a server, try something like:
java -Xmx4g -jar Fastqc.jar *.fastq &

Fastqc will analyse all fastq files in the directory and save the results.

If you are not interested in running in interactive mode (GUI) then you can indeed use the command line as Colindaven pointed out.

More information available here: http://www.bioinformatics.babraham.a...qc/INSTALL.txt Look for the section on "Running FastQC as part of a pipeline".
