I've read that it is highly convenient to use SAET (or similar tool) to improve the quality of data prior to use align/assembly tools, but maybe this recommendation is prior to development of BFAST.

Any experience?

Thanks in advance.
I do not know how SAET works. I would recommend not using SAET and letting BFAST (I am the author) identify color errors versus variants. If you have a recent run with a known reference you can try with and without SAET to assess the difference in color/base error rates after alignment with BFAST. Please PM me if this is the case, since I would interested in the results.
