Manage Barcodes

By default, the database of the web application is completely empty. The first thing to add is a few barcodes.

The interface for managing barcode sets can be reached through the “Barcodes” link at the top and it is self-documenting.

Commonly used barcodes are available for download in the Flowcelltool Github repository.


Note that the barcode sequences should be given in “forward” orientation. Flowcelltool will automatically reverse-complement the second index in the case of dual indexing if the sequencing machine uses the Illumina Dual-Index Paired-End Sequencing Workflow B.

If you create your own barcode set then please share them by creating a ticket in the Flowcelltool Github issue tracker.
