How do `fastq.gz` datasets relate to the `.fastqsanger` datatype metadata assignment?

Before assigning fastqsanger or fastqsanger.gz, be sure to confirm the format.


  • Using non-fastqsanger scaled quality values will cause scientific problems with tools that expected fastqsanger formatted input.
  • Even if the tool does not fail, get the format right from the start to avoid problems. Incorrect format is still one of the most common reasons for tool errors or unexpected results (within Galaxy or not).
