I have just started using Mothur to create sff.txt files from sff files.
and the error was:
Extracting info from ~/Plate2/FCR16V105.sff …
Magic Number is not correct, not a valid .sff file
It took 0 secs to extract 0.
Output File Names:
i have used Matlab commands sffinfo and sffread to verify that the file is uncorrupted and a genuine SFF file.
Any help or pointers would be useful.
