Default Program to Randomly Chop Sequence files?

Hey Guys,

First post! Anyone know of a program one could use to chop up a sequence file (15kbp; mtDNA genome) into random smaller fragments (~150bp)? I want to chop up the sequences of 5 or 10 species, mix them together and then see if alignment software can tease them apart to the correct species. It's a test for some NGS we are planning to run.

Thanks for any input!!

Assuming that you want to simulate NGS reads (and not just FASTA fragments, though you could convert the simulated fastq to fasta later) ART: is an option.

Here is a past thread on this that has other suggestions:
