Hello...I created a tab separated text file containing a primer name and associated primer sequence, but Galaxy's factqc does not seem to recognize my tab delimited text file format.

  1. Is the format .txt (tab delimited)?
  2. I only have two columns, the primer name and associated sequences.

Thank you!

Yes, the format is a two column input, no header, with a tab separating the columns.

Try changing the datatype to tabular.

The tool will then recognize the input. If the jobs fails, then there is a formatting problem with this input (extra spaces, or possibly spaces instead of tabs) or the fastq input (format or the assigned datatype is a mismatch).


  • How to format fastq data for tools that require .fastqsanger format?
  • Understanding compressed fastq data (fastq.gz)
  • Reformatting fastq data loaded with NCBI SRA
  • Format help for Tabular/BED/Interval Datasets
  • Common datatypes explained
  • The tool I'm using does not recognize any input datasets. Why?
  • How do I find, adjust, and/or correct metadata?

Thanks! Jen, Galaxy team

Thank you Jen. Importing the primer/adapter list as a tabular file was successful.
