Re: Update of SeqIO:: fastq Module for PacBio


One of the folks at PacBio got back to me this weekend saying that the FASTQ encoding bug will be fixed in an
upcoming software release.

When I asked him how they were fixing it he said "The QVs are now being clipped at 89." Needless to say I'm
extremely skeptical of these quality values.
