**What it does**

This tool joins paired end FASTQ reads from two separate files into a single read in one file. The join is performed using sequence identifiers, allowing the two files to contain differing ordering. If a sequence identifier does not appear in both files, it is excluded from the output.

Sequence identifiers with /1 and /2 appended override the left-hand and right-hand designation; i.e. if the reads end with /1 and /2, the read containing /1 will be used as the left-hand read and the read containing /2 will be used as the right-hand read. Sequences without this designation will follow the left-hand and right-hand settings set by the user.


**Input formats**

Left-hand Read::


Right-hand Read::
