This app takes an SRR number (SRA database run number) as input, and downloads an SRA file, then converts the SRA file to a fastq file.

Although this app is still functional, it does not have the capability of working with the new SRRs or splitting FASTQ files for paired-end reads. If you need that functionality, please use the NCBI-SRA-Fastq-dump-2.8.1 app instead.
