Learn about the different types of file formats that come with sequencing DNA and proteins. We'll go over FASTA, FASTQ, SAM, BAM, CRAM, BED format and more!
Learn about the most basic file formats, including csv, tsv, and markdown.
Learn what the multi-FASTA and FASTA formats are, their extensions (fas, fna, faa, ffn, frn), how to convert to and from FASTA and obtaining them from the NCBI database.
Learn about FASTQ format, which is similar to FASTA, but includes quality scores.
Learn about SAMtools, and the three file formats it generates - SAM, BAM and CRAM.
Learn about the BED file, which are used to customize data lines on a genome browser such as UCSC browse, Galaxy browser, and bedtools.
Learn about the Wig and BigWig formats, used to store dense continuous data such as GC percent and probability scores.
Learn about the general feature format (GFF) and the general transfer format (GTF).
earn about the different conversion tools used to convert among file types.
