I am sure this question was already asked, although I could not find any information, I am new to sequences processing and I would like to know if there is a way to merge fastq.gz files:
I have this set of files:
CACTCTGAGT_S7_L001_R1_001.fastq.gz CACTCTGAGT_S7_L001_R2_001.fastq.gz CACTCTGAGT_S8_L001_R1_001.fastq.gz CACTCTGAGT_S8_L001_R2_001.fastq.gz
I have 33 files and I would like to merge the R1 and R2 files with a for loop or another way that is not in bash.
Thanks a lot!
