I am aligning some .fastq files from ChIP-seq experiment using bowtie(v1.2.3) and for only 5 out of 20 files in my dataset I get the following error message during the alignment process:
Floating point exception: 8
Consequenlty, the output .sam file gets truncated and bowtie stops running.
I did not manage to find any explanation for that, especially because everything works fine for the other .fastq files, except for 5 of them.
I wonder if any of you has faced the same problem before and managed to fix it.
