I am attempting to use Galaxy to calculate the mean sequence read length and identify the range of read lengths for my 454 data. The data has already been organized and sorted by species. The format of the data is as follows:
That was probably FASTA format (but mangled in the email).
I have attempted to use the "Summary Statistics" button, however it appears to only be for numerical data and not sequence data. Is this tool/task available via Galaxy?
Use the "Compute sequence length" tool to compute the read lengths, and then you should be able to compute some statistics about the lengths.
