You'll only be able to attach a few common picture files (jpg, png, tif(?), bmp) and text, pdf, and maybe MS office files. You may be able to take a screenshot (print screen/prt sc button on a PC, or use Grab on a mac) if you can open your files in a multiline view.

Do you have a description of the problem?

thanks bob1 for ur passing :)

actually i don't really know what's the problem ...

the sequencer read many Ns ... :( and this is the first time i encounter such a problem!
even upon repeating the sample ... it also failed ...

there is no problem with my purification, i checked the (gel pure product) on the gel and it gave me a beautiful band ...

It reads many Ns why? Is the sequence underneath "ugly" or fine? At least image would be fine. Can you display raw data in your sequence software?

i don't know :( althought the peaks are some what resolved ...
it is fine ... image you mean, i capture the chromatogram ???
you mean the .abi data ??
if yes, this is what am trying to attach here ...

grateful ... :)

I tried this: rename .ab1 file to .pdf and upload with Advanced uploder. That allowed the upload for me. We can download and rename it back.

By image I meant a picture, screenshot of the sequence. If there's nothing else.

Of course it won't open. You need to rename it back before opening, to ab1.

See this file?
 test.pdf   153.64KB  267
I uploaded it, it looks like pdf but it's not, it's a sequence. Download, save and rename to test.ab1 and it opens as a sequence. Works for me.

Just upload the sequence renamed to pdf, leave opening to us Posted Image
