eXpress Error : exists in MultiFASTA but not alignment (SAM/BAM) file
I was using the eXpress to read my BAM files and got this error
Target 'some_target' exists in MultiFASTA but not alignment (SAM/BAM) fileActually my FASTA reference was originally downloaded in Windows environment and then transferred to Unix environment therefore it contains some Windows specific characters which are responsible for this error. I run following command
tr -d '\r' outputHere INPUT is the name of my reference FASTA while OUTPUT is the name cleaned FASTA. This will convert the line endings in a text file from DOS (or Windows) to UNIX format. Hope this will help someone else too.
First of all, let me clear it that i am not a Bioinformatician. i am simple plant biology researcher who face problem in her daily research life and who bother to post solution of those problem on this webpage. That's it.
