The preprocessing methods provided in IMEX enable splitting
*.fasta (or text) files: Currently the
IMGT/HighV-QUEST information system enables the upload of
*.fasta files containing max. 500,000 sequences.
If your file contains more sequences use the Split NGS Data tool of IMEX and prepare the data for the IMGT
upload. (Of course you can use the splitter also for
*.fasta files with less than 500k sequences for your own
preprocessing purposes.) After preprocessing the files using IMGT/HighV-QUEST and splitting the original
*.fasta files, you can use the file merger offered by IMEX.
It is important that for all merged parts were created using the same parameter settings having the same filename including the ending “_PART_X.zip” (e.g., PatientX890_PART_1.zip and PatientX890_PART_2.zip and so on).
