FastQC aims to provide a simple way to do some quality control checks on
raw sequence data coming from high throughput sequencing pipelines. It
provides a modular set of analyses which you can use to give a quick
impression of whether your data has any problems of which you should
be aware before doing any further analysis.
The main functions of FastQC are
* Import of data from BAM, SAM or FastQ files (any variant)
* Providing a quick overview to tell you in which areas there may
be problems
* Summary graphs and tables to quickly assess your data
* Export of results to an HTML based permanent report
* Offline operation to allow automated generation of reports without
running the interactive application

* Team upload.
* Avoid use of SAMFileReader to fix FTBFS.
Closes: #846708
* Add autopkgtest cases and accompanying test data
for SAM/BAM input files.
* Make sure jar dependencies are found. Before fixing this,
htsjdk classes were not found at runtime. This problem only
surfaced with BAM/SAM inputs, which were not tested so far.

fastqc (0.11.5+dfsg-5) unstable; urgency=medium
[ Gilles Filippini ]
* New patch drop-fast5.patch to temporarily drop support for fast5
file format. This way we can drop the build-dependency on
libsis-jhdf5-java which doesn't support HDF5 1.10 yet (#842815).
fast5 files can easily be converted to fastq using poretools.
Closes: #844760
