Hi,guys my former question was here http://www.biostars.org/post/show/45025/how-to-estimate-genome-size-using-k-mer-coverage/#45148 my problem is this jellyfish could only handle with fasta format files. But mine was color space reads (1234, two bases determined one color) generated by SOLiD platform. Does anybody know another tool for countering K-mer that may support color-space reads ? Or: I think although Color-space is differ from base, the K-mer multiplicity for same sequence will be the same.So if I directly do" tr/1234/acgt/ (double encode)", and use it as input , the jellyfish may produce same result as with the fasta format input? Am I right?
Thanks for your attention, any advice will be appreciated!
