Thanks again! I have been following your suggestions
I hit a roadblock while using the daa-meganizer option. During my previous try, when I had used default settings, meganizer failed to identify my reads as being paired and hence the verbose output had paired: false
To overcome this, I set the option as --paired true and --pairedSuffixLength 11. The following warning popped up
WARNING: Not an RMA6 file, will ignore paired read information
Is there a way to overcome this warning without converting my daa file to an RMA6 file?
