May you tell me please from where i should know whether a read file is paired or not???
From the file. Alternatively from the person who gave you the file.
You maybe want to read this thread: How To Check If Illumina Fastq Is Single Or Paired End With Minimal Sequence Id
I have just file and im in windows..
If you just have a single file then that's typically single-end. Paired-end reads normally come in two separate files (with R1 and R2 or _1 and _2 in the file names).
Thank you Devon
You will have to post a few reads. As @Devon pointed out a single file generally means single-end reads unless this was a file where the paired-reads were interleaved (i.e. read 1 follows read 2 in the same file).
