8/29/2011 2 Color space fasta and quality files quality file each base in the color space fasta has a quality associated with it sequences in color space format base + number = next base Color-space to letter-space T323 T followed by red (0) color A + yellow(2) --> G + red (3) C T323 TAGC This is almost never decoded as such before alignment because any error in the color space will alter all subsequent basecalls. This makes operating with Solid data a bit more difficult.
