Hello,

I would like to align reads from RNA fastq to a custom short reference sequence. I made a small fasta file with >Name in the header followed by DNA sequence. Do I need to do anything else to the file for tools lie BBmap or HISAT2 to be able to use it as a reference?

Thanks

it didn't work with BBmap but I will try a different aligner, perhaps?

Post your command, and the error (if any), and perhaps an example of your FASTA.
