Hi I am a new user of parallel. I am trying to use it instead of loops to do fastq file trimming using Agilent Agent trimmer. When I run it one by one without using parallel, output is one R1 and one R3 file for each sample as expected. But using the code below produced 4 R1 and 4 R3 files for each sample. Could someone tell me what I have done wrong please?

Input:

cat metatry.txt | parallel java -Xmx5G -jar $Trimmer -fq1 {}R1_001.fastq.gz -fq2 {}R3_001.fastq.gz -xt -out_loc /Trimmed/

Output:

trim -fq1 153_D1_S11_R1_001.fastq.gz -fq2 153_D1_S11_R3_001.fastq.gz -xt -out_loc /Trimmed/

Trimmed file created:
    /Trimmed/153_D1_S11_R1_001.1607137111246_Cut_0.fastq.gz
    /Trimmed/153_D1_S11_R3_001.1607137111246_Cut_0.fastq.gz

The output of head metatry.txt would be useful here.
