URL error - FASTA format

Post by l.marisaldi »

Dear all,
I am trying to perform training on the genome of the model species I am investigating on following the instructions provided.
However, an error always comes out as follows:
Genome file http://nrifs.fra.affrc.go.jp/cgi-bin/lime_download/lime.cgi?tuna_Scaffold is not in DNA fasta format
(I applied the URL approach because the file exceeds 100 Mb, but it is less than 1 Gb)

I checked it several times and if pasted on a web browser the download starts, so everything seems to be fine. Also the file itself is ok as contains scaffolds fasta-formatted.

Someone can help me?

Thanks a lot,

The problem is that your file is sitting behind some kind of proxy or forwarding. WebAUGUSTUS can only access files that are directly available (i.e. resonse code 200, your file has resonse code 302).

If you consent, I can temporarily host the file on our server for you. Just let me know.
