Hi, I am trying to merge paired-end illumina reads (read length: 101) .
I am using the command: fq2fa --merge --filter sample_1.fq sample_2.fq sample.fa
I am getting: terminate called after throwing an instance of 'std::logic_error' what(): SequenceWriter::SequenceWriter() ostream is invalid Aborted (core dumped)
I have done this with my previous batch of samples, and was able to merge the paired-end reads and then assembled them successfully. Since then my computer was wiped and so I have re-installed idba-master. Since re-installing, any command I use results in the same error. I even tried to re-assemble a merged paired-end fasta file from my previous sequencing batch. The same error is occurring, even though I had successfully assembled it in the past.
Can anyone please help.
