    That is correct. Some programs require an explicit "-i" to signify input.

    Thanks, dpryan!
    It worked!!!
    I didn't add '-i' in front of the input file, so the program couldn't find a input file.
    Am I understanding right?

    Oh, I actually missed the "input file (-)" part of the error. An input file of "-" typically means stdin, which is the default for that command. Also, there is no "-Q" parameter, so that's likely ignored. The command should be:

    Code:
    fastx_quality_stats -i 4.1.fastq

    The file doesn't seem to have blank at the start.

    Code:
    $ head 4.1.fastq

    As I mentioned earlier, I used 'cat' command to merge four files.
    Could that cause the problem?

    The error means that the first line of the file is blank. If that's true, then the file is screwed up. What does
    Code:
    head 4.1.fastq
    show?

  • fastx_quality_stats error : input file (-) has unknown file format

    Hi.
    I was trying to check qualities of my fastq files from RNA-seq using fastx-toolkit, but I kept getting a following error.

    Code:
    $ fastx_quality_stats -Q 33 4.1.fastq
    
    fastx_quality_stats error : input file (-) has unknown file format (not FASTA or FASTQ), first character = (10)
    RNA-seq was performed in Hiseq2000 (paired-end), and the guy who ran the sequencing gave me these files when I asked the raw sequencing data. I merged all the fastq files in each sample into one file using 'cat' command since I wated to map them as singe-ends.

    Has anyone expreinced this?

    Thanks!

    Multiomics Techniques Advancing Disease Research
    by seqadmin


    New and advanced multiomics tools and technologies have opened new avenues of research and markedly enhanced various disciplines such as disease research and precision medicine1. The practice of merging diverse data from various ‘omes increasingly provides a more holistic understanding of biological systems. As Maddison Masaeli, Co-Founder and CEO at Deepcell, aptly noted, “You can't explain biology in its complex form with one modality.”
