We have installed a custom galaxy instance and we would like to analyze 20 samples. However, each of these samples is spread over four lanes. For subsequent analysis we would like to merge them first.
I am aware of several similar questions on this topic and they all point to the Text Manipulation: Concatenate datasets tail-to-head tool. But to do this for a large amount of samples is quite tedious. Is there a better way?
I am quite proficient in the commandline, but I would really like it if the wetlab people could do this themselves.
