I used "sudo apt install" to install AByss and then ran a de novo assembly with 2x150 bp sequencing. The sequence seems to have gone okay since I didn't receive any error messages. However, when I try to access the word and/or FASTA the files, I'm told that "Word is unable to read this file" or "The file cannot be accessed by the system" (when I try to open the FASTA contigs file in notepad). I am able to access the stats excel sheet. My ultimate goal is to analyze the assembly in quast and to do that I need the FASTA file.
Does anyone have any thoughts on where I can troubleshoot in installing or running the assembly to gain access to the outputs?
