The Trimming tab of the Assembly Options dialog is used to set parameters for the trimming phase of the assembly. To access the tab from the Assembly Options screen, click the Advanced Options button then click on the Trimming tab.

Default parameters vary according to the sequencing technology and project type specified elsewhere in the wizard, and values seldom need to be changed.

Parameter Description
Minimum quality The minimum averaged quality score of the evaluated window that is required in order to be considered low-quality.
Window The length of the window to be used for averaging quality scores.

Once you are finished, click the Alignment Layout or Scans tabs to change those settings. Or click OK to save all changes and return to the Assembly Options screen.
