MultiQC - Summarise results across 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.
MultiQC has a dedicated website with extensive documentation at http://multiqc.info
Installation and Usage
You can install MultiQC from PyPI using
pip as follows:
pip install multiqc
Then it’s just a case of going to your analysis directory and running the script:
That’s it! MultiQC will scan the specified directory (‘
.' is the current dir) and produce a report detailing whatever it finds.
The resulting report is called
multiqc_report.html by default. Tab-delimited data files are also created in
multiqc_report_data/, containing extra information. These can be easily inspected using Excel or used in other downstream analysis.
MultiQC is built around a framework for extension, enabling simple addition of custom modules, templates and extra functionality. For more information, please see the documentation.
