(Frequently) Asked Questions

  1. Why does it take a very long time for the program to show some progress?
    This mostly happens when the file you supplied only contains a single line of code sequence and the file is larger than several megabases. The solution is to follow the guidelines of the FASTA format and only have about 80 characters on a single line. For more information on the FASTA format, please see the Wikipedia page on the subject.
  2. Does EP3 support FASTA files with multiple sequences in it?
    No, it does not. EP3 does not take into account the start of a new sequence in the middle of the file.
