I'm attempting to convert a SAM file to a BAM file using the following command:
samtools view -S -b test.sam > test.bam
However, I'm getting the error
[main_samview] fail to read the header (see figure). The figure attached shows the error I'm getting on the top and the contents of the beginning of the SAM file on the bottom. Has anyone seen this before? Is there a simple fix? I'm still new to computational biology, so I'd appreciate any help I can get.
