I've downloaded a lot of *sra archives, and i want to get information about the content of each of them.
Can i do it without extracting every archive?
What kind of information?
What is the content of the archive: is it unmapped reads (which i will need to align then) or is it already aligned *.sam file
You can pretty much assume that all SRA files contain unmapped reads. The ones that also contain mapped reads are pretty rare.
ok, thank you for the answer, then i'll just align them all
Take a look at sra-stat (and its options) from `sra-toolkit`` to see if that helps.
