You need to use many tools or algorithms to process FASTQ files, which are generated by high throughput sequencing systems. But it is only converting read sequences to biological data formats. Don't you think you spend too much time to learn those software operations? We provide this service for researchers who don't want to waste time on merely data handling, but spend more time on biological interpretation and discovery.
Generally speaking, there are technology dependent layer and independent layer. If you spend time on learning skills of the "dependent" layer, they will be outdated sooner or later. But skills of the "independent" layer will never fade. So it is more efficient to learn skills of "independent" layer first, and then "dependent" layer if you want. But many students seem doing in a opposite way, and disdaining the most important part.
