Fastq de-interlace

Hello,

I have been trying to run the fastq de-interlacer tool for weeks, several times, on different fastq files.
The tool takes too long to proceed, staying orange for days.
Is there any known issue with the de-interlacer tool?

Thank you, have a good day.

Hi @ambrette,
the problem is that this tool relies on Python code, which means that it is not very computationally efficient. I suggest you split the file into two (or more) datasets and run each one in parallel. After that, you can merge the corresponding forward and reverse reads.

Regards
