I am downloading an SRA data for a study. The study is basically, Illumina Paired data. However, the study description shows that, "This run has 2 reads per spot" and Reads section show the following:
>gnl|SRA|SRR768721.1.1 HWI-ST0798_0099:2:1101:1545:2240 (Biological) CCAGAATGCGCCCGGTGCATTCTGGGACTCCGAATCAGAAGAGGGAGTTGCGTCAGAGGC GGAGGTGGATGAAGCAGCGGGAGGAGAGGCGGAATCATCGG
>gnl|SRA|SRR768721.1.2 HWI-ST0798_0099:2:1101:1545:2240 (Biological) TACACTCGTAACCTCCTCGCCGCCAACCCCGACGTTCTTCAAGAGGGTGGTGCCATTGAC CTAAGCTCAATGTCCAGCNCNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN
Does this mean that, .1 & .2 represent the pairs and I should 'fastq-dump --split-files' to split them into two files ?
Thanks in Advance,
