how to merge multiple fastq files

Jennifer Jackson-2
Hi Tracy,

The tool "Text Manipulation -> Concatenate datasets tail-to-head" can
put the two together. Then set the datatype to fastq, if needed (click
on the "pencil" icon for the full dataset to reach the "Edit Attributes"
form to make the change).

Be sure to watch out for an extra newline being added between the two
files. You can test for/eliminate this using "Filter and Sort -> Select"
with the options "that: NOT Matching" and "the pattern: ^$".
(the regular expression '^$' [no quotes] matches empty lines).

I am sending to the galaxy-user mailing list for our internal tracking
and for other users to learn from. Please send all questions directly to
the list going forward, it is very helpful for us.

Thanks for using Galaxy!
