importing fastq files and naming conventions

Thank you for this! I was able to demultiplex my paired-end sequences.

However, I had to change the file names of my files, A_R1.fastq.gz and A_R2.fastq.qz, to “forward.fastq.gz” and “reverse.fastq.gz”.

Are there any future plans to incorporate the ability to specify your forward and reverse files and be able to have them named whichever way?

Hi @Kenneth,

We don’t have any concrete plans right now, but this is similar to the problem faced by multiplexed data, where we have a large directory we need to populate. I could see generalizing the concept of a manifest file being a possible option. Of course this situation would be much easier to design around if we had a proper graphical interface, but that’s also a ways off.
