I am trying to download some Placozoan RNA-seq reads to assemble them from SRA(SRR8193747 SRR8193748 SRR8193749) using fastq-dump:
nohup fastq-dump --split-3 SRR8193748 SRR8193747 SRR8193749 &
According to SRA the reads are paired. Therefore I am expecting to get
*_2.fastq files (and maybe some unpaired as well) like always. However, in this case I am getting only one file per run:
SRR8193747.fastq SRR8193748.fastq SRR8193749.fastq.
The output from fastq-dump says:
Rejected 5037041 READS because of filtering out non-biological READS Read 5037041 spots for SRR8193748 Written 5037041 spots for SRR8193748 Rejected 5157059 READS because of filtering out non-biological READS Read 5157059 spots for SRR8193747 Written 5157059 spots for SRR8193747 Read 8889366 spots for SRR8193749 Written 8889366 spots for SRR8193749
Is there something wrong with the SRA files or with my setup?
