More Information

Example programs that can open and edit SFF files include SFF Workbench (formerly 454 SFF Tools) and MATLAB. If using MATLAB, you should use the sffread() function, which returns the SFF data in a MATLAB array of structures. 454 Life Sciences also provides a toolkit for processing and analyzing SFF files, called the GS Data Analysis Software.
