A tool designed to provide fast all-in-one preprocessing for FastQ files. This tool is developed in C++ with multithreading supported to afford high performance.



See versions of fastp that are available:

$ module avail fastp

Load one version into your environment and run it:

$ module load fastp/0.22.0
$ fastp

Note: please use the -w option to specify the number of CPU threads to use (default is 2). This number should match the number of CPUs you requested in your SLURM job.
