UnicodeDecodeError


(Acetylcholine88) #1

I am trying to run the EMPPairedEndSequences command and keep getting this:

UnicodeDecodeError: ‘ascii’ codec can’t decode byte 0x8b in position 1: ordinal not in range(128)

An unexpected error has occurred:

’ascii’ codec can’t decode byte 0x8b in position 1: ordinal not in range(128)

See above for debug info.
