I have executed diamond blastx for
150062 sequences with .xml file as output. However, when I load the file into Blast2GO, only
69032 got uploaded into Blast2GO. While troubleshooting, I got to know that the .xml file itself contains unrecognisable characters (as shown in the below image) which could be the probable reason of this.
This issue is somewhat related to the issue mentioned on the diamond github page here, however, the solution mentioned there is not helping me.
How to get rid of these symbols?
