Hi there,

I have a few hundred .AB1 files, with their associated .PHD.1 files. I can successfully open each .AB1 files in UGene as well as FinchTV and extract a .SEQ file (plain FASTA file) manually. However, this involved a lot of mouse clicks.

Does anyone know of command line tool for extracting the sequence from a .AB1 file?

Thanks! skhan
