This tool divides a fastq file into smaller fastq files, based on the number of output files specified. For ecample, if one specifies 5 output files it will split the fastq into 5 files of equal size. This can be very useful if one wants to use chunking option in one of our pipelines: FastqSplitter can generate the exact number of fastq files (chunks) as needed. This tool is used internally in our pipelines as required
To get the help menu:
biopet tool FastqSplitter -h Usage: FastqSplitter [options] -l <value> | --log_level <value> Log level -h | --help Print usage -v | --version Print version -I <file> | --inputFile <file> out is a required file property -o <file> | --output <file> out is a required file property
To run the tool:
biopet tool FastqSplitter --inputFile myFastq.fastq \ --output mySplittedFastq_1.fastq --output mySplittedFastq_2.fastq \ --output mySplittedFastq_3.fastq
The above invocation will split the input file into 3 fastq files of equal size.
Multiple fastq files based on the number of outputFiles specified.
