I have Four lanes per sequencing run => 4 fastqs each so for each patient I have 16 Fastq files
I am using STAR for alignment by this code (each lane)
STAR --genomeDir ./hg38_Genome --readFilesIn ./fastq1./fastq2
At the end I would have 4 sam files
Should I merge sam files from each lane or I should merging lane when alignment by STAR?
Any help please?
