  • creating Roche's sff files

    Hello,

    does anybody knows if *.sff files can be created for example from Roche's *.qual and *.fna files?

    Have a nice day, enna80

    The short answer is no, because you won't have the flow space information. You can fake this, but why bother? The Roche Newbler tools accept FASTA+QUAL as input don't they (as well as SFF)?

      Thank you!

      Jup, just as i thought.

      Well, problem is that the NCBI's Sequence Read Archive (SRA) will only take *.sff but for one sample we do not have them.

        The NCBI certainly won't want an SFF file with faked flow information.

        I suggest you email the SRA to explain your situation, but first try to talk to your sequencing center again about getting the SFF files (and in future, insist on them).

          While they certainly prefer the SFF file, they also will accept FASTQ files if that is all you are able to provide. A FASTQ can be created from the .fna & .qual files.

            Thank you dear all.

            Indeed SRA prefers *.sff but meanwhile I found out, that they would also help you out, if you only can provide *.fna and *.qual.

            I was also able to get all *.sffs now. The problem was a bug in the 2.0.00.20 software version of the 454 sequencer, which did not report the same IDs in the *.fna and the *.sff ...

              Recent Advances in Sequencing Analysis Tools
              by seqadmin


              The sequencing world is rapidly changing due to declining costs, enhanced accuracies, and the advent of newer, cutting-edge instruments. Equally important to these developments are improvements in sequencing analysis, a process that converts vast amounts of raw data into a comprehensible and meaningful form. This complex task requires expertise and the right analysis tools. In this article, we highlight the progress and innovation in sequencing analysis by reviewing several of the...

              Essential Discoveries and Tools in Epitranscriptomics
              by seqadmin




              The field of epigenetics has traditionally concentrated more on DNA and how changes like methylation and phosphorylation of histones impact gene expression and regulation. However, our increased understanding of RNA modifications and their importance in cellular processes has led to a rise in epitranscriptomics research. “Epitranscriptomics brings together the concepts of epigenetics and gene expression,” explained Adrien Leger, PhD, Principal Research Scientist...
