Tapestri DNA Pipeline only supports merging two-lane runs where each tube contains two pairs of forward (R1) and reverse (R2) files. For more than two-run lanes, merge all the R1s together and all the R2s together by using the “cat” command in Terminal.
cat tube1_L001_R1.fastq.gz tube1_L002_R1.fastq.gz tube1_L003_R1.fastq.gz tube1_L004_R1.fastq.gz >tube1_R1.fastq.gz
cat tube1_L001_R2.fastq.gz tube1_L002_R2.fastq.gz tube1_L003_R2.fastq.gz tube1_L004_R2.fastq.gz >tube1_R2.fastq.gz
