Hello everyone,

I have a fastq file in .gz format. I am trying to unzip it but it fails and give the error of "unexpected end of file" . This fastq file has been obtained from illumina sequencer. I was wandering if something was wrong with the sequencer or the way that they have zipped the file. Did any body have a similar problem with fastq file unzipping?

Thanks

In this case, you must be check the md5sum for your fastq file.

"unexpected end of file" means that the fastq file was not completely downloaded.
