Hi @amir

Could you explain more about what you are doing? Share a few sample lines?
The tabular datatype is very general.

One example: If the tabular dataset contained identifiers and sequence reads:

  1. convert tabular > fasta > fastq. actual quality scores are optional – default scores can be added in.
  2. convert fastq to an unmapped bam/sam

Not very useful and an extra step … since most tools accept reads in fastq format as an input, even if they also accept reads in an unmapped bam/sam.
