Methods often define an appropriate alphabet, so that the user does not have to provide one.} \item{...}{Additional arguments, perhaps used by methods defined on this generic.} } \details{ The default method requires that \code{stringSet} extends the \code{\link[Biostrings:XStringSet-class]{XStringSet}} class of \pkg{Biostrings}. The following method is defined, in addition to methods described in class-specific documentation: \describe{ \item{alphabetByCycle}{\code{signature(stringSet = "BStringSet")}: this method uses an alphabet spanning all ASCII characters, codes \code{1:255}. } } } \value{ A matrix with number of rows equal to the length of \code{alphabet} and columns equal to the maximum width of reads or quality scores in the string set. Entries in the matrix are the number of times, over all reads of the set, that the corresponding letter of the alphabet (row) appeared at the specified cycle (column). } \seealso{ The IUPAC alphabet in Biostrings. \url{http://www.bioperl.org/wiki/FASTQ_sequence_format} for the BioPerl definition of fastq.
