I have probably silly problem. I work on Join Genome institute software and I have my results in fasta format (i mean it looks like fasta) BUT I don’t know how to save it in fasta format so I can open it in mega-they just don’t have saving option. Any ideas?

What doesn’t have saving option?

well joint genome institute web page they show me my gene list and I have option to see it in fasta format but I can’t save it I just have empty page with only fasta on it.

than just copy and paste into text file 😆

well it isn’t that easy cause I have to open it later in mega4 so it have to be blahblahblah.fasta not blahblahblah.txt and here is my problem cause all convertors just show output but don’t save with the right extensions

My mentor told me in the beginning: "Just forget about what is Microsoft pushing you into, forget everything about the extensions."
This is just plain text, you can give it any extension you want – *.txt, *.fasta, *.fsa, *.fas, *.tab… whatever. I have one file ending with .friends (by the Tv series;) 😆 But you have it to be just plain text in format:
>your_ID whatever you want to have here
>ID2 description of your second sequence
OK? So, just copy your sequences,put it into Notepad (not Word!!!) and put Save As and choose "All files" and into the name put "something.fasta" or .fsa or .fas, that doesn’t matter so much, the format is important 😉

I will try just now! thank you!

You’re welcome 🙂 One doesn’t understand, how much important the formatting is, unless s/he doesn’t write some program…

Oh I am far from that! I’m very thankful for your help. anyway MEGA decided not to work with me good format or wrong(it just show some error)

What kind of error did you see from MEGA?
