From: Quality filtering of Illumina index reads mitigates sample cross-talk

Fig. 4

Trade-off between removing misassigned and preserving correct reads during quality filtering. (Top) Misassignments were not efficiently removed by quality filtering the sequence reads (gray line), whereas quality filtering the i5 and i7 index sequences was highly effective (black line). Quality filtering sequence reads in addition to index reads (red line) did not remove substantially more cross-talk. (Bottom) Quality filtering either sequence reads or index reads was effective at removing sequence misassignments
