Default BED to ELAND/bowtie/MAQ ?

Hi all,

I'm working with a .bed format file of illumina reads and I don't have the original alignment file. A program I'm working with can read in bowtie, eland, maq or modified bed (see below) but not regular bed files!

Anyone have a good recommendation for ways to convert .bed to one of these file formats?

I guess you cannot go back to alignment data, because bed files only retain mapping positions (plus possibly some other information). You may do a couple of things:
1- simulate alignment data assuming all your reads are perfect matches with fake quality (possibly playing with awk and fasta reading tools)
2- try to fit your bed into the modified bed.
Which "modified bed" format are we talking about? How do your data look like?
