Hi biostars!

I want to assemble some reads from real dataset like However, I am confused with the description of Accession ERR011087. It says, library layout: paired. I do not know what this "paired" means.

The first 24 lines of ERR011087.fastq is

I did not see anything suggests there exists some kind of pair in the file. Does this file only contain single-end reads or pair-end reads? If it contains pair-end reads, how can I figure out which two reads are in one pair?

To answer you first question:

'Library layout: Paired' simply means that it's a paired end sequence run. If you visit ENA (which in my opinion is simpler to use for raw read downloads) for ERR011087, this is what you find You can see that there are two fastq files listed here.

I'm guessing that you retrieved yours through ncbi sra with fastq dump? You have to be careful here and actually specify that you want both pairs of sequences extracted, as I believe the default is for it to not to...

Yes, I use fastq-dump to convert sra file to fastq file.

Do you mean that if I use fastq-dump directly, I will have a mistake?

Depends on how you used fastq-dump. For paired end illumina files you would want to use --split-files option to get the two PE files.

Simple answer to your question,

ERR011088 is the pair file of ERR011087

ERR011090 is the pair file of ERR011089

Check the design description, pair-end files will share the same sample, i.e., Solexa sequencing of MetaHit individual MH0001 random pair end library for ERR011088, ERR011087

oh, really? I do not agree with you.

Could you please show me the link to the description? I did not notice that.
