Hi Scott

I  never used megablast so what i am writing is true of just any fasta file (so if there is anything quirky in megablast that i dont know about, apologies!):

  • Take your fasta file and convert to tabular (under "fasta manipulation" - this will make it go to one line per record).
  • Then randomly choose whatever number of reads you want using "select random lines from a file" under the text maniupulation tab.
  • Then convert the tabular file back to fasta. (under the fasta manipulation tab)

noa

Hi all

When using Galaxy megablast, is there a simple way to reduce my FASTA files from 23 million reads to 1/2 that size and submit to megablast separately?

Thanks
