Is there a way to identify if the RNASeq data has already undergone demultiplexing?
I have received files which have been run on 4 lanes and so I have 4 .fastq.gz files for each sample.
I know I can compare the qualities of these to ensure there is no lane specific bias but can I figure out from these files if they have been demultiplexed?
Also in terms of merging the files should I run FastQC on each file prior to merging and again after? I am trying to find a nice tutorial on demultiplexing so if anyone could recommend one I would really appreciate it.
I have normally just received a demultiplexed .fastq.gz file and am now trying to learn how to handle the data I have from basespace.
Cheers and Happy Holidays.
