I want to do bulk-RNAseq so I sent to sequence 12 samples 9pair end strategy) and I need to do the fastqc, alignment etc. I am trying at the moment do to a for loop to get the fastqc since it takes ages but I am not able to do it so I am not sure what I am doing wrong.
For one sample I would do:
/Users/camilla/Desktop/FASTQ/FastQC/fastqc /Users/camilla/Desktop/FASTQ/00_fastq/P3D40_R1_001.fastq.gz —extract -o /Users/camilla/Desktop/FASTQ/QC_before
but I am not able to make it for a loop and save the output file in the folder (QC_before).
I found this code here script
for file in *.fastq doo echo " fastq $file" done
but it's not really working. Can someone help me?
Thank you and apologies if it is a stupid question!
