Select sequences by ID (version 0.0.3)
FASTA, QUAL, FASTQ, or SFF format.

What it does

Takes a FASTA, QUAL, FASTQ or Standard Flowgram Format (SFF) file and produces a new sequence file (of the same format) containing only the records with identifiers in the tabular file (in the order from the tabular file).

WARNING: If you have any duplicates in the tabular file identifiers, you will get duplicate sequences in the output.


This tool uses Biopython to read, write and index sequence files. If you use this tool in scientific work leading to a publication, please cite the Biopython application note (and Galaxy too of course):
