NCBI stores data in .sra format. We can download it and convert it into fastq format using `fastq-dump` from SRA toolkit. 

 

However I want to convert fastq files into sra format to save disk space. Any ideas how to convert fastq to sra?

Mothur seems to have a Make.sra command that converts fastq to sra format.

I think the original question was to convert fastq into .sra format, not fasta format, but perhaps I misunderstood.

Thanks Sean for the correction, I misunderstood the original question.
