I'm trying to assemble several dozen prokaryotic genomes using SPAdes. My inputs are paired end illumina reads (2x125). I've learned how to use the software but am unfamiliar with programming - when it comes to bioinformatics, I just know basic unix commands and how to navigate and manipulate files and directories in my university's linux server.
The command in SPAdes I use for a single genome assembly is: spades.py --careful -1 my_forward.fastq.gz -2 my_reverse.fastq.gz -o /my/output/directory.
It seems time consuming to run each genome assembly one by one. Is there a way to run the entire set of separate genome assemblies in one go, so as to save time and trouble? Do I need to know python script? I would appreciate your input, thank you!
