Keywords: sequencing data, FastQC

Resource type: Video

Learning objectives:

In this RDMbite you will learn which are the key FastQC metrics needed to inform read manipulation, including both raw read trimming and adapter removal, and see how trimming can drastically improve a dataset. This video follows on from the FastQC explainer RDMbite. If you’re unsure about what FastQC can tell you about sequencing data, check out that introduction and come right back.
