I am using Canu assembler to do a de novo assembly of PacBio data. I noticed that when I corrected my reads it produced a .fasta not a .fastq file, therefore loosing the quality score data of my original raw PacBio reads. Is there any parameter or option I can add so that the quality score is not lost when issuing the "canu -correct" command? Thank you!
P.S. I am trying to pipe the corrected reads to MIRA and MIRA requires quality scores when I run it on Geneious.
