Hi Dominique,
I’d use the original fasta file and input it into the 'Fasta Manipulation > 
Compute Sequence Length' tool
Then, using the output, run the 'Statistics > Summary Statistics for any 
numerical column' tool on c2.
That will give you all the info you’re after.

Subject: [galaxy-user] Summary Statistics


I am attempting to use Galaxy to calculate the mean sequence read length and 
identify the range of read lengths for my 454 data. The data has already been 
divided into columns:

I have attempted to use the "Summary Statistics" button, however it appears to 
only be for numerical data and not sequence data. Is this tool/task available
via Galaxy?

Thank you in advance,

Dominique Cowart
