I am wondering what is the most widely used method/program/tool to automate the launch of bcl2fastq program as soon as the run finishes off on the Illumina machine. I am about to start writing my own custom shell script for the same; but before I do that I want to know whether ready-made solutions are already available.
The run folder nomenclature is as follows:
My idea would be like this -
Keep looking for folder containing the "Instrument Serial No." in its name: for every 15 minutes : Look inside the run log file for something which says - sequencing complete if YES: Launch bcl2fastq else PASS:
If someone has better idea which could be implemented, please do let me know.
