  • How to add characters to start of fasta header

    Hi Everyone,

    I have small question. How do we add characters to a start of a fasta header?

    I know we can add it to the end of Fasta header using this.

    Code:
    perl -p -e 's/^(>.*)$/$1-New_Header_info/g' input.fasta > output.fasta
    Although I could use Galaxy, but I am trying to avoid it for this and learn a bit of perl at the same time.

    Thank you in advance.

    You're almost all the way there: just move the $1 to the end of the replacement string. Also, it'll be a little easier if you take the greater than (>) out of the match.

    Code:
    perl -p -e 's/^>(.*)/>New_Header_Info $1/' input.fasta > output.fasta
    For this, you really don't need the /g at the end since you're matching the whole line and, because the .* is greedy, the $ at the end of the match string is unnecessary as well.
