FQC Dashboard: integrates FastQC results into a web-based, interactive, and extensible FASTQ quality control tool

Bioinformatics. 2017 Oct 1;33(19):3137-3139. doi: 10.1093/bioinformatics/btx373. Epub 2017 Jun 9.


Summary: FQC is software that facilitates quality control of FASTQ files by carrying out a QC protocol using FastQC, parsing results, and aggregating quality metrics into an interactive dashboard designed to richly summarize individual sequencing runs. The dashboard groups samples in dropdowns for navigation among the data sets, utilizes human-readable configuration files to manipulate the pages and tabs, and is extensible with CSV data.

Availability and implementation: FQC is implemented in Python 3 and Javascript, and is maintained under an MIT license. Documentation and source code is available at: https://github.com/pnnl/fqc .
