I am testing how to use rsamtools to extract DNA sequences from a fasta file. The testing fasta (as test.fa) is very simple:


I used GRanges to create a GRanges object:

gr <- GRanges(seqnames = "scaffold_0", strand = c("+"), ranges = IRanges(start=4, end = 10))

and load/index the fasta and finally use getSeq to extract the sequence:

FA <- FaFile("~/Desktop/test_genome/test.fa")

However, the getSeq function gives me an error: 

Error in value[[3L]](cond) :  record 1 (scaffold_0:4-10) failed
  file: /Users/myhome/Desktop/test_genome/test.fa

Any thoughts? Thanks!!!

Found the problem! The indexFA should take the file path (e.g. here as  indexFA("~/Desktop/test_genome/test.fa")).
