I know there have been many questions regarding merging fastq files. But I am not getting relevant answers in my situation.
I have 4 paired-ended fastq files.
Can I just cat the first two files and the last two files to make s_6.fastq and s_7.fastq? I would like to use these fastq files for mapping with BWA or Bowtie.
Hope to get some suggestions regarding this. Thanks, AShwin
