What is considered a Sample?

Any sample that is prepared for processing on an instrument is considered a Sample for ROSALIND. If a Scientists decides to take two (2) aliquots of the original sample to have replicates and prepares library for each, this would be considered two (2) Samples on ROSALIND. On the other hand, a Sample may have mutliple files associated with it, depending how sequencing is performed. A single sample may be single-end, paired-end and also multi-lane and will still be considered as one (1) Sample.
