I am new with programming within bioinformatics and long story short, I'm practicing writing pipeline scripts starting with the fastq to VCF pipeline. I am basically at the point where I went from fastq to sorted-bam files, and as I went to check on the status of the files using IGV, no visual mapping showed up for the bam files and am not sure why. I have 2 fastq's (because they are paired end) per sample (one tumor and one normal), but I only used one of the two fastq's for my own simplicity. Is this the issue on why it hasn't show up on IGV? I'm guessing I should have used both fastq's when using bwa mem to create the SAM file. Below is my code (yes I know, plenty of if/then statements because I'm still new to programming), let me know if anyone has a potential answer to this.
