Hello all,

Is it possible to create a .gfa file out of a fasta file?

This is outputted by some assembly programs and is great for assembly visualization in bandage. But I have now scaffolded my assembly and would like to visualize that as well.

Cheers,
Ricardo

These files are generated in the assembly process using software like e.g. flye. Usually assemblers do the process of reads -> assembly graph -> assembly (contigs or scaffolds). The graphs are intermediates and represent repeats and branches, basically uncertainties in the assembly process. You can't go back from an assembly to a graph.

What if I try to do an assembly using my scaffolds as reads. Wont it build an assembly graph for them?
