Hello all,

I am going to start alignment using STAR aligner.

STAR --runMode alignReads --runThreadN 9 --genomeDir /folder/name --readFilesIn /folder/file.fq --outStd Log --scoreInsOpen 10 --scoreDelBase 5 --scoreInsBase 5 --scoreDelOpen 10 --outFileNamePrefix /folder/out

How can I run this command in the background on a Linux server I am using? So that the alignment will still run even if I shut down my laptop.

Thank you in advance.

Could be as simple as adding an & at the end of your command.
