How to download Fastq files from SRA archive

If you want to download sequence reads from the SRA archive you can do this in their .sra format which then you need to transform to fastq using the SRA toolkit.

However you can also download directly fastq files from the SRA archive:

Go to your run and copy the Experiment number, e.g. SRX157609

Go to Download
FASTA/FASTQ
Enter Experiment number
Select Fastq
Download
