So, I recently got some RNA-seq raw reads, both paired end (2 x 150 bp) and single-end (1x75 bp) I want to map them using STAR aligner. My main questions are then, how would you deal with these? Can STAR take both paired-end and single-end .fq files simultaneosuly? Or mapping separetely and then merging the bam files is also possible?
Thank you for your advice
