Rename sequences (version 0.0.1)
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) where the sequence identifiers have been renamed according two the specified columns a the tabular file.

WARNING: If you have any duplicates in the intput sequence file, you will still have duplicate sequences in the output.

WARNING: If the tabular file has more than one new name for any old ID, the last one is used.


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