IBIS Helmholtz-Node extension for KNIME Workbench version by IBIS KNIME Team

The FileLoader loads either one or two separate input files or a list of files whereby it serves as a starting point for any NGS workflow.


Input file
Choose an input file in fastA, BAM/SAM, fastQ, VCF or format. A list of files (as .csv, .tsv or .list) with one file path per line can also be loaded. In this way, several fastQ files of paired-end read experiments can be loaded. Pairs of fastQ files should be in the same row, but different columns, separated by tabs, white-spaces or commas.
Second optional fastQ file
In the case of paired end reads, a second fastQ file can be loaded.

Output Ports

Cell 0: The loaded file
Cell 1 (optional): The second fastQ file (if existing)
