Sample Sheet

A sample sheet (SampleSheet.csv) records information about samples, the corresponding indexes, and other information that dictates the behavior of DRAGEN. The default location of the sample sheet is the input folder. To specify any CSV file in any location, use the command --sample-sheet. When a sample sheet does not exist in the default location and no sample sheet is specified in the command line, DRAGEN produces an error unless the --no-sample-sheet true option is specified (provided for legacy applications with no demultiplexing, adapter trimming, or other sample-sheet-specified settings supported).

In addition to the command line options that control the behavior of BCL conversion, use the [Settings] section in the sample sheet configuration file to specify how the samples are processed. The following are the sample sheet settings for BCL conversion.
