I have an old paired end data from 2015 which I previously analyzed using QIIME1. But now I need to re-investigate that on QIIME2 for some reasons.
I have only .FASTA and .QUAL files and can’t ask sequencing core to provide me with R1 R2, since it is to late to ask this.
I am thinking that I can convert .FASTA and .QUAL into single FASTQ using QIIME1 script convert_fastaqual_fastq.py
But then I do not know how can I convert them to R1 and R2. so that I can use them in QIIME2.
