I have a draft assembly using long reads only with Flye of a small bacterial genome (820,000 bp).I would like to improve this assembly with paired-end Illumina reads using Racon.
However, in the command line of Racon, I don't see how I can enter both Illumina files (R1.fastq and R2.fastq).
racon [options ...] <sequences> <overlaps> <target sequences>
Could I have some help, please?
Probably you need to convert this into sam file first and follow the command:
Thank you so much for your reply. I've already generated the alignement file using bowtie2. I was just wondering how to join Illumina paired-end reads so that racon take them into consideration ?
this should help you: https://github.com/isovic/racon/issues/68. Please pay attention to the last comment of the same post wrt sam file.
