Does fastx_toolkit accept *fastq.gz file as input file? Or does it have to be fastq/a file?
I get the following error message when i try
fastx_clipper -Q33 -z -a GATC -i my.fastq.gz -o my_adapRem.fastq
fastx_clipper: input file (my.fastq.gz) has unknown file format (not FASTA or FASTQ), first character = (31)
is this because of zipped input data or am i missing something else?
