FASTQ format

In contrast to FA files, the leading character of the description line in FASTAQ (Fasta Quality) files is "@" ("at"). Then, the sequence is following, and afterwards a separator line that is leaded by a "+" ("plus") character indicates the start of the qualities. See here for some examples on the FASTQ file format. The Flux Simulator encodes qualities as ASCII characters by adding an offset of 64 according to the Illumina standard.
