I have paired-end fastq files some of which seem to be in a weird format (from a collaborator, not a public database). When I
cat the file I get what seem to me to be binary syntax but not sure?
However when I
cat into the other pair-end the output seems fine
Any help/suggestion/solution would be greatly appreciated.
It does seem to be compressed with a missing suffix:
file pair1.fastq pair1.fastq: data.
