Create aggregate bioinformatics analysis report across many samples
MultiQC is a tool to aggregate bioinformatics results across many samples into a single report. It is written in Python and contains modules for a number of common tools (FastQC, Bowtie, Picard and many others).
You can install MultiQC from PyPI as follows:
pip install multiqc
Then it’s just a case of going to your analysis directory and running the script:
MultiQC will scan the specified directory (
'.' is the current dir) and produce a report detailing whatever it finds.
The report is created in
multiqc_report/multiqc_report.html by default. A zip file of the report is also generated to facilitate easy transfer and sharing.
Tab-delimited data files are created in
multiqc_report/report_data/ to give easy access for downstream processing.
