Trimmomatic performs a variety of useful trimming tasks for illumina paired-end and single ended data. The selection of trimming steps and their associated parameters are supplied on the command line.  It works with FASTQ (using phred + 33 or phred + 64 quality scores, depending on the Illumina pipeline used), either uncompressed or gzipp’ed FASTQ.
