ExtractAdaptersFastqc reads which adapter sequences where found from a FastQC raw report. These sequences can be used as input for a QC tool such as cutadapt. The sequences can be output in plain text format with a newline character as a separator between the sequences. Alternatively the sequences can be output in FASTA format.
