Selecting a Subset of Reads From an SFF or FASTQ File

Description: This video tutorial demonstrates how to take a subset of sequencing reads from an .sff file (454 or Ion Torrent output) or a .fastq file (Illumina output). This can be useful when assembling phage genomes, since NextGen sequencing technologies often return too many reads to get a good assembly for a single phage genome.
