Good Evening, I just received my sequencing data with no directions from the sequencing core on how to download the files. And I do not have access to a bioinformatician to help me out. I am trying to do RNAseq analysis on galaxy but I am stuck at step 1.
The core sent me a bunch of files online with the names Mydata.fastq.gz.webloc I was trying to first move them to my external harddrive for safekeeping. Right now each file takes about 40 minutes to upload to my hard drive and I have 29 files left to upload. So far I have been getting them onto the hard drive by double clicking save as Mydata.fastq. I was wondering if there is a faster way to get them all onto my external hard drive?
I'm sure there has to be a smarter way to do this could you point me in the right direction? Also I am not sure exactly how I should get the .fastq files onto galaxy. I noticed the example data from the tutorials are called fastqsanger. Once I get the data do I then need to change all of the file extensions to fastqsanger in order to upload them into galaxy? If so, is there a smart way for me to do this as well?
I have barely any skills using the command line so if that is the only way to do this efficiently I will need a lot of guidance. Thank you so much for your help, Pam
