Hi, everyone

I have paired-end fastq from target amplification and want to merge them using BBMerge. But I find it seems there are two strands reads in the final merge fastq. I know it is becasue there are two strand reads in my fq1 or fq2, just like

so the final merge fastq have two strand reads. just like

I am wondering whether I can only get the plus strand reads. Because the fq is the CRISPR-Cas9 screen data, and only the plus strand reads have the same squence as sgRNA. I can not simply trans-rev fq1 or fq2, because the plus and minus strand are mixed in the fq1 and fq2

Best wises

You can filter the merged reads using to keep only the reads that have the sequence you want. Something like this should work: in1=R1.fq.gz in2=R2.fq.gz out=stdout.fq other_options | in=stdin.fq outm=keep.fq.gz literal=sequence_you want
