Hi I've tried running
platanus assemble -o plat_errorcorrected -k 60 -f *pair1.fastq *pair2.fastq 2> plat.log
and I get:
Error(2): Read file exception Read file is not FASTA/FASTQ format!!
They are fastq format though.'ve trimmed these reads with skewer and corrected using BFC. Reads that were only trimmed and not error corrected were able to be assembled using Platanus and when I tried converting these fastq to fasta, it still would give the same error. These same fastq files were able to be assembled by ABySS. Any advice? Has anyone ever encountered this?
Thanks in advance
