Tapestri Pipeline requires both .fastq files and the .zip file output file from Tapestri Designer.
Use fastq.gz files, which are compressed FASTQ files. The QC module has a check for validating the .gz files. If the files are not compressed, the QC module will fail.
- Use a “.” only in the file extension and not in the file name.
- Include _R1_ and _R2_ to indicate Read1 and Read2 sequencing files. The flanking underscores are mandatory.
- Do not include spaces in the file name.
Tapestri Designer .zip file
Tapestri Designer outputs 10 files that are downloaded as a .zip file. This .zip file should be submitted to Tapestri Pipeline without any changes. For more information on this file, see this article.
