Hi Simon,

Thank you for the reply.

The story is a bit compilcated.

1. I downloaded some colorspace data about a month back. Then I accidentally deleted the file, so I wanted to download again. However, I can only get reads in sequence space from the same place where I downloaded before.

for example, when I was trying to download the modEncode data for Drosophila from this link, I only get sequence space data.

2. SRA tools do not work for me for some reason, I have a post before on this forum, and SRA tool was not terminating for a single color space file for about 24 hrs. I found the above link, from which I can download the data (which I wanted to download again now) from SRA. But now, it's not working again.

Any suggestion?

If you have a .sra file instead of a direct fastq file then you can use the --dumpcs option to fastq-dump to get colorspace fastq files from the sra file.
