I have a text file that contains some metrics about sequencing data as output from FastQC programm. as in the image:
This data represents the quality of calling each base in a group of sequenced reads.
The columns are:
Base No. | Mean | Median | Lower Quartile | Upper Quartile | 10th Percentile | 90th Percentile
The problem is that after base No.9, each two bases are represented by one single line, which is not convenient for how I am going to manipulate this data.
Therefore, I need to update this file using bash command line to have each line representing 2 bases be split into 2 identical lines, only the number of the base is changed. Example: line before any edits:
16-17 36.65222632355253 39.0 36.0 40.0 30.0 41.0
16 36.65222632355253 39.0 36.0 40.0 30.0 41.0 17 36.65222632355253 39.0 36.0 40.0 30.0 41.0
and so on for all the lines representing 2 bases.
I believe this will be by a for loop; however, I do not know how this could be written in bash.
Also, I am not sure how to deal with values in the first column that are written in the form of (number-number) (i.e. 16-17) it seems that I cannot use them in the regular comparisons using ( =, > and <)
Thank you in advance.
