I have some Ilumina reads from a metagenomic project, in a fastq file and I am trying to "fish out" some sequences in particular from all the mess. I conducted a blast search of this and I got the sequences I am interested in, in fasta format. The thing is, I need the sequences in fastq format for assembly. How can I extract the sequences from the original fastq file using the blast fasta file as a reference? or should I just convert my output blast file in fasta format to fastq format?
Thanks in advance.
