Using Ion Reporter for data from other platforms
I have been using Ion Reporter (together with our Ion PGM and S5) for several years now and am really happy with this software.

Now I received data from an Illumina platform and was hoping to analyse this with the same software.

Has anybody else tried this before? And did you succeed?

The fastq files I got were aligned with bwa mem. The uploading of the bam files went allright, but when trying to analyse them, I get an error message about the SamReadGroupRecords List being null or empty.

Anybody has any suggestions?

You can add read group info to your bam-files using Picard's AddOrReplaceReadGroups ( You can also add it during alignment with the -R option to bwa.
