Hi Dominique,

This means that there were no results. My fault - the Filter tool is the wrong choice. The Select tool, as you were starting with, is better for this case. The issues you had originally were most likely with format or the regular expression. So, be sure to do the following this time:


1. Converting to tabular format (choose "1" for the identifier on this tool's form, to keep the output in a simple two column format)

2. Use a regular expression in the Select tool, "Matching", like this:

          \tATGC

Where the "\t" indicates tab (the tab between the two columns), anchoring the matching text to the start of the sequence string. You could be more specific with the regular expression if you need to, following the guidelines on the tool help, but it probably isn't necessary if the rest of your sequences are formatted like the examples below.

These sequences in your example are seperated by an empty line - but I am assuming that was just the way the data was pasted into the email. In a properly formatted fasta file, there should be no empty lines. To remove empty spaces in a fasta file, you can also use the Select tool (directly on the fasta format file), with a "NOT Matching" and this regular expression:

      ^$

Where ^ means the start of a line, and $ means the end. Together, they indicate a blank line. "NOT Matching" selects all lines that are not a blank line, e.g. have content.

Please give this a try and let us know how it works.

Hi Jennifer,
Thank you for your reply.
I tried used the options you gave me to split files.
The second option, which would filter by basepair identity executes, however, the resulting job is green but empty and says "no peek" in the columns when I go to view. Do you know what this means?
Thank you,
Dominique

    Hello Dominique,

    Would the tool 'NGS: QC and manipulation -> Barcode Splitter' meet
    your needs? Please see the tool's help for usage.

    Another option is to first covert the file to tabular with 'FASTA
    manipulation ->FASTA-to-Tabular', then use the 'Filter and Sort ->
Filter' tool. The match criteria would look something like: c2=='ATGC' . Once done, convert back to fasta with 'FASTA
    manipulation -> Tabular-to-FASTA'.

    Hopefully one of these methods will work out for you,

    Hello,

    I would like to use Galaxy to divide a very large Ilumnia fasta
    file (~3GB) into separate fasta files. Is this possible on
    Galaxy? Here is an example of the reads:

    >HWI-ST156:535:C10GLACXX:8:1101:1195:1080 1:N:0:CGGTTGT
    
AAATAGAATATCACATTAAAATCACAAGCAGGACAGTGTGTGTAAAAGAAATCTTTTGTGAATTCAACGTTTATCAATTAGANNNNACGCCTACGTGTAG

    >HWI-ST156:535:C10GLACXX:8:1101:1210:1102 1:N:0:CGGTTGT
    
ATTTATCATAACAACTTAAATCAGTCAGTGGATTTCTGTCGGTCCGGTTAGCTCGGTTGGTAAAGGCGTTTGTTCGATCGTCTGTATTTTGCAATCGGGC

    I have tried the "Filter and Sort" option to try and select
    sequences just by a beginning sequence (ATGC, for example) to
    separate these sequences into a specific file, but I have been
    unsuccessful in this.

    Thank you,

    Dominique
