DNA Barcode Deconvolution

DNA Barcode Deconvolution software deconvolves a FASTA, FASTQ, or SFF file based on the barcode sequences including SISPA (Sequence-Independent, Single-Primer Amplification) barcode sequences, as determined by running fuzznuc to find the best hits of read to barcode sequences. The results are a report of trim points, and a list of barcode fasta files with each entry representing a read sequence that has its unambiguous best hit to the bar code. The bar code sequences are trimmed by default, unless otherwise specified.
