  • Consed ERROR opening Geneious .ace file

    Hello all,

    I am trying to open an .ace file exported from the Geneious software. Strangely, when I try to open it in Consed (consed_mac) in the graphical user interface it gives me the following error message:

    exception thrown: ace file error detected from source file parseAceFile.cpp at 1888
    Error in file Contig1.ace at line 4245. Line:
    93 93 93 93 93 93 93 93 93 93 93 93 93 93 93 93 93 93 93 93 93 93 93 93 93 93 93 93 93 93 93 93 93 93 93 93 93 93 93 93 93 93 93 93 93 93 93 93 93 93

    There must be exactly the same number of quality values as unpadded consensus bases for contig Contig_1

    ace file: Contig1.ace
    Version 19.0 (090206)

    ace file = Contig1.ace
    Version 19.0 (090206)

    I JUST started using consed, but I have no idea why my .ace file would be problematic. Could anyone advise me in this? Have I done something wrong, or is this a common bug I can address? Thanks!

    It sounds like your ACE file may be broken. Have you tried looking at it in any other tools, which may not check this field? e.g. Tablet can view ACE assembly files,

      never tried before but seems Geneious produces bad ace file. My error message is following:

      exception thrown: ace file error detected from source file parseAceFile.cpp at 1907
      Error in file NC_008260_bb.ace at line 3917080. Line:


      premature end of file while expecting BaseQuality line

      I use linux (fedora) and consed version 20.0.

      Contact Geneious developers, my experience is that they are quite collaborative.

        I think your right, its just strange not to have heard about this problem before. I would expect exporting ace files from Geneious is something people do all the time. I am in contact with the Geneious tech support, we'll see how it goes...

          Your ace file needs reprocessing. Remove quality from *'s.

          It looks like yours ace file has got quality assigned to the pads (stars), which is the violations of the consed ace standard. So the ace file needs reprocessing to remove *'s quality.
          BTW: same problem is present with the Lasergen NGEN 2 or 3.1 ace files...

            Error

            I have another error while executing consed for the first time. Here is the command line followed by the warnings that I've got:

            Fatal: The parent directory must contain either phdball_dir or else phd_dir, but it doesn't. A typical directory structure is a directory named after the project, with subdirectories named edit_dir (containing the ace files), solexa_dir (containing the solexa *_seq.txt and *_prb.txt files), sff_dir (containing the 454 sff files or links to them), phdball_dir (containg the phdballs), and chromat_dir (containing chromats of any gel-based reads). Obviously you don't need all of these. Consed is run from within edit_dir.

              I guess you should first check - do you run consed from an edit_dir folder and that you have a phd_dir folder at the same level as edit_dir..

              and just a recommendation do not use root as default user

                indeed the edit_dir, phd_dir are at the same level but strangely the command worked once I used another user than the root.

                PS: the root was only for the installation procedure

                  Current Approaches to Protein Sequencing
                  by seqadmin


                  Proteins are often described as the workhorses of the cell, and identifying their sequences is key to understanding their role in biological processes and disease. Currently, the most common technique used to determine protein sequences is mass spectrometry. While still a valuable tool, mass spectrometry faces several limitations and requires a highly experienced scientist familiar with the equipment to operate it. Additionally, other proteomic methods, like affinity assays, are constrained...

                  Strategies for Sequencing Challenging Samples
                  by seqadmin


                  Despite advancements in sequencing platforms and related sample preparation technologies, certain sample types continue to present significant challenges that can compromise sequencing results. Pedro Echave, Senior Manager of the Global Business Segment at Revvity, explained that the success of a sequencing experiment ultimately depends on the amount and integrity of the nucleic acid template (RNA or DNA) obtained from a sample. “The better the quality of the nucleic acid isolated...
